Remote Sensing Calibration Systems: An Introduction
This book deals with the principles of calibrating the instruments that are used to measure the various forms of reflected & internally generated terrestrial radiation over the larger part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The author deals with the concepts & sources of solar & terrestrial radiation, types of sensors & sensor arrays, sensor mounting systems & their relation to the types of satellite orbits, global integrated calibration systems, accuracy requirements & ground-based & real-time calibration techniques. A great deal of responsibility is placed on the personnel who calibrate the sensors. It is for these people the book has been written--scientists & engineers, as well as advanced level students who will be working with remote sensing radiometric calibration systems & the system engineering of sensor signal output accuracy. Tables & indexes. $60.00. A Deepak Publishing.
