Impact of Surface Roughness on Remotely Sensed Radiances

To analyze remotely sensed radiances obtained by instruments such as the Sea-viewing Wide Field of view Sensor (SeaWiFS, on-board SeaStar) or the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS, deployed on both the Terra and Aqua spacecrafts), and the Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS, deployed onboard the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Envisat platform, NASA has developed a comprehensive data analysis software package (SeaWiFS Data Analysis System, SeaDAS), which performs a number of tasks, including cloud screening and calibration, required to convert the raw satellite signals into calibrated top-of-the-atmosphere (TOA) ...
