A scene-average automated cloud-cover assessment (ACCA) algorithm has been used for the Landsat-7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM ) mission since its launch by NASA in 1999. ACCA assists in scheduling and confirming the acquisition of global “cloud-free” imagery for the U.S. archive. This paper documents the operational ACCA algorithm and validates its performance to a standard error of 5 percent. Visual assessment of clouds in three-band browse imagery were used for comparison to the five… CONTINUE READING
