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… Expand
