The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument is scheduled for launch aboard the first of the Earth Observing System (EOS) spacecraft, EOS-AM1. MISR will provide global, radiometrically calibrated, georectified, and spatially coregistered imagery at nine discrete viewing angles and four visible/near-infrared spectral bands. Algorithms(More)
The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) is an Earth-observing sensor, which provides global retrievals of aerosols, clouds, and land surface parameters. Instrument specifications require an accurate absolute calibration, as well as accurate camera-to-camera, band-to-band and pixel-to-pixel relative response determinations. In order to achieve these(More)
The directional-hemispherical reflectance is obtained for Spectralon, the material chosen for onboard radiometric calibration of the multiangle imaging spectroradiometer, at laser wavelengths of 442, 632.8, and 859.9 nm. With p- and s-polarized incident light and for an angle of incidence of 45 degrees , the bidirectional reflectance distribution function(More)
We report on the preflight spectral calibration of the first Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) instrument. In particular, the instrument line shape (ILS) function as well as spectral position was determined experimentally for all OCO channels. Initial determination of these characteristics was conducted through laser-based spectroscopic measurements. The(More)
