A New Statistical Method of Estimating Surface Radiances from Corresponding Satellite Window-channel Radiances

Abstract

Stepwisc linear rcgressions for the specification of blackbody surface radiances are computed using a set of 103 model atmospheres chosen originally by Wark et al. and the corresponding simulated values of Nimbus 2 windowchannel (10-11 p) radiances. Two stratifications arc considered: (a) precipitable water vapor, u > l , and (b) u < l gm cm-2. For each of… (More)
