1 June 2001 New algorithm for atmospheric correction of hyperspectral remote sensing data
Author Affiliations +
We previously developed an algorithm for remote sensing of ocean color from space that allows quick atmospheric correction of hyperspectral data using lookup tables generated with a modified version of Ahmad & Fraser's vector radiative transfer code. During the past year we extended our radiative transfer calculations, allowing us to generate tables for several airborne altitudes. We also modified our lookup-table software to interpolate to sensor altitudes between those specified in the new tables. Here, we present results of atmospheric corrections using the new tables and software on hyperspectral imagery collected with NRL's recent PHILLS instrument and past AVIRIS flights.
