Title: Validation of the ASTER Thermal Infrared Surface Radiance Data Product
Authors: Palluconi, F. D.
Issue Date: 5-Aug-1996
Citation: Denver, Colorado, USA
Abstract: The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and reflection Radiometer (ASTER) is a 14 channel high spatial resolution instrument selected for flight on the EOS AM-1 platform...To provide an objective assessment of the validity of the atmospheric correction, in situ measurements of water surfaces under a variety of atmospheric conditions will be used to estimate the surface leaving radiance at the scale of an ASTER pixel... These measurements and the spectral emissivity of the water will be combined with the relative system spectral response to provide and estimater of thermal infrared surface leaving radiance for each ASTER thermal channel. An example of this approach using a multichannel thermal aircraft scanner as a stand in for ASTER will be described.
