The polarization discrimination technique we recently developed, shows that it is possible to separate the elastic scattering and the chlorophyll fluorescence signal from the water-leaving radiance by making use of the fact that the elastically scattered components are partially polarized, while the fluorescence signal is unpolarized. The technique has been(More)
In this paper, we demonstrate a regional approach to Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aerosol optical depth (AOD) retrieval over urban scenes. By using simultaneous MODIS and AErosol RObotic NETwork (AERONET) sky radiometer data, we show that for urban scenes, the surface reflectance ratios between the visible (VIS) (0.47and 0.66-μm)(More)
The recently developed short wave infrared (SWIR) atmospheric correction algorithm for ocean color retrieval uses long wavelength channels to retrieve atmospheric parameters to avoid bright pixel contamination. However, this retrieval is highly sensitive to errors in the aerosol model, which is magnified by the higher variability of aerosols observed over(More)
The impact and potential of a polarization-selection technique to reduce the sky background signal for linearly polarized monostatic elastic backscatter lidar measurements are examined. Taking advantage of naturally occurring polarization properties in scattered skylight, we devised a polarization-discrimination technique in which both the lidar transmitter(More)
The artificial neural network is a powerful tool for the detection of the transmission line faults due to its ability to differentiate between various patterns. This paper deals with the application of artificial neural networks (ANNs) to the fault detection and classification in high voltage transmission lines for high speed protection which can be used in(More)
