Field work was carried out on June 8 and 9, 1999 to evaluate the use of the Salar de Uyuni as a test site for in-orbit satellite calibration. A dataset of ten Thematic Mapper (TM) images, from 1988-1997, was used to select three test points based on the analysis of the temporal stability of the reflectance of Salar's surface. Bidirectional reflectance factor (BRF) values of Salar's surface within the precision suitable for vicarious calibration procedures were obtained using a CE313-2/CIMEL… 

In-flight absolute calibration of the Landsat-5 TM on the test site Salar de Uyuni

TLDR
An in-flight absolute calibration of the Landsat-5 data was carried out in the Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia and it was only possible to determine calibration coefficients for bands TM2, TM3, and TM4 due to the saturation of band TM1 and surface moisture conditions that impacted the TM5 and TM7.

TLDR
The results of the here presented simple methodology show that MERIS and A-MODIS are radiometrically in line and indicates a possible early degradation of the POLDER-3 sensitivity.
