2 August 2002 New approach to atmospheric correction of hyperspectral data
Author Affiliations +
A combined radiative transfer model and statistical approach to atmospheric correction of hyperspectral data, called MODFULL, has been developed and tested. MODFULL retrieves in-scene water vapor and aerosol (without the aid of dark pixels) which it uses for atmospheric correction. It also provides the user with checks on spectral registration of the hyperspectral data being processed. A description of this model will be given along with an analysis of its strengths and weaknesses. A summery of test results using comparisons with an industry standard Empirical Line Method (ELM) correction will also be presented.
