The Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) onboard Landsat 8 was tasked with continuing thermal band measurements of Earth as part of the Landsat program. From first light in early 2013, there were obvious indications, such as nonuniform banding and varying absolute calibration errors, that stray light was contaminating the thermal image data collected from the instrument. Stray light in this case refers to unwanted radiance from outside the field-of-view entering the optical system and being recorded… CONTINUE READING
