This joint article presents the POLDER-OCTS preflight cross-calibration procedure and data set. POLDER is a radiometer developed by CNES devoted to the measurement of the polarization and directionality of the Earth's reflectances and OCTS is an ocean color and temperature scanner developed by NASDA. Both radiometers are onboard the ADEOS satellite to be launched in 1996. The preflight POLDER-OCTS cross-calibration experiment was carried out by NRLM, NASDA, and CNES from March to April in 1994 using round- robin radiometers. The cross-calibration results show the agreement between NRLM/NASDA and CNES radiometers better than 6% regarding POLDER integrating sphere at CNES in Toulouse and better than 5% regarding OCTS integrating sphere at NEC in Yokohama. Calbration of OCTS integrating sphere by NEC agreed with cross calibration by NRLM/NASDA within 3%. The calibration of CNES round-robin radiometer is guaranteed at 3.5%.
