Abstract: The bidirectional reflectance factor, BRF, retrieved by the Multiangle Imaging SpectroRadiometer, MISR, is compared with those coincidently measured from aircraft, by the Cloud Absorption Radiometer, CAR, and MISR airborne simulator, AirMISR, and on the ground, by the Portable Apparatus for Rabid Acquisition of Bidirectional Observations of Land and Atmosphere, PARABOLA Ill. The intercomparisons are made for six types of surfaces: bright desert, salt pans, grassland, forests, snow and the Dismal Swamp. The results show that MISR BRF values are mostly within ± 10% in agreement with the corresponding airborne and ground measurements, independent of the surface types This study is part of an effort to evaluate and validate MISR surface products.
