[1] Computation of components of shortwave (SW) or solar irradiance in the surface-atmospheric system forms the basis of intercomparison between 16 radiative transfer models of varying spectral resolution ranging from line-by-line models to broadband and general circulation models. In order of increasing complexity the components are: direct solar(More)
Spectral radiance measurements obtained from space-based or airborne imaging spectrometer systems that are looking downward through the atmosphere at the earth's surface contain a wealth of surface information. However, the radiance measurements must be compensated for the influence of the atmosphere in order to retrieve surface reflectance spectra, which(More)
MODTRAN “ Version 5.1 [1] includes many new capabilities introduced specifically to enhance and facilitate atmospheric compensation. For the thermal region, the new 0.1 cm-1 statistical band model provides the finer spectral resolution required for analysis of state-of-the-art long-wave and mid-wave hyper-and ultra-spectral imagers (e.g. AIRS). The 0.1 cm-1(More)
