—In this letter, we generate a temporal/spatial matchup data set between QuikSCAT scatterometer and RADARSAT-1 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) wind products in offshore waters along the U.S. West Coast. Analysis of the resulting three-year database shows that, in general, the wind products from both sensors have characteristics similar to those reported in(More)
Different ontology matching approaches which utilize diverse semantic information to bridge heterogenous ontologies perform different adaptability and use value on the same task. Usually, combination of a set of different matching approaches can achieve higher accuracy than single approach. Therefore, a method based on induced ordered weighted averaging(More)
The monitoring capability of a polarized instrument (POLDER) under high aerosol loading conditions over China is investigated. The aerosol optical thickness (AOT), which infers the aerosol burden, is used to measure the satellite monitoring capabilities. AOT products retrieved from POLDER on low aerosol loading days, and products from a radiometric(More)
The panchromatic and multispectral (PMS) sensor is an optical imaging sensor aboard the Gao Fen-1 (GF-1) satellite. This work describes an approach to validate the calibration coefficients of the PMS sensors based on the image data of the Landsat 8 Operational Land Imager (OLI). Two image pairs, one obtained over the Dunhuang test site and the other over(More)
Satellite remote sensing is of considerable importance for estimating ground-level PM2.5 concentrations to support environmental agencies monitoring air quality. However, most current studies have focused mainly on the application of MODIS aerosol optical depth (AOD) to predict PM2.5 concentrations, while PARASOL AOD, which is sensitive to fine-mode(More)
A method for canopy Fluorescence Spectrum Reconstruction (FSR) is proposed in this study, which can be used to retrieve the solar-induced canopy fluorescence spectrum over the whole chlorophyll fluorescence emission region from 640–850 nm. Firstly, the radiance of the solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (Fs) at five absorption lines of the solar spectrum(More)
