Paper Abstract

Spectral reflectance is the fundamental and common parameter in satellite remote sensing analysis. A prime objective of the applied remote sensing program is to recognize scene status, without identifying or conditioning of these observable radiance measurements. The most frequently used data analysis or information extraction procedure is mapping of the scene elements, based on their radiance measurements into information classes using software techniques of pattern recognition. Generally, there are more reflectance data available than data on either emissivity or diffusivity for all terrestrial targets. The spectral responses along the electromagnetic spectrum permit the characterization of the spectral reflectance curves of the objects and permit us to distinguish them one from the other. At first, this paper presents a brief theoretical view for the spectral reflectance and measured terrain feature response parameters. For different types of targets, spectral signatures are analyzed to identify and to interpret terrain data. The reflectance of terrain elements must be considered stochastic variables in the natural field work.
