|Abstract: ||The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) is one of five instruments on-board the EOSI Terra spacecraft, and has collected science data since March 2000. A multi-angle capability is provided by nine
cameras, which view up to 70" forward and aft of the spacecraft track and enable unique geophysical retrievals. Throughout its mission, a calibration team has made periodic refinements to the process used to calibrate MISR. These have resulted in improved absolute, and band and camera-relative calibrations, as well as in derived geophysical data products. Data reprocessing is on-going, such that these refinements also improve previous data acquisitions. The calibration process is believed to be mature at this time, with no other changes anticipated. Bimonthly deployments of the on-board-calibrator continue to monitor instrument response degradations, and provide correction coefficients needed to maintain the accuracy of the radiance products.|
