The snow surfaces of the high plateaus of the East Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets are used to determine multi-year drift in the sensitivity of the visible channel of the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) on the polar-orbiting satellites NOAA-9, 10, and 11. Bidirectional re ectance distribution functions are empirically derived for the months of October–February (Antarctica) and April–August (Greenland) using a simpliŽ ed atmospheric model. The bidirectional re ectance of… CONTINUE READING
