Paper Abstract

The spectral calibration of the space-borne imaging spectrometer is the basis of establishing correct spectral features of the earth scenery and carrying out accurate radiometric calibration. The spectral calibration error has effects on the measurement errors of the imaging spectrometer while imaging to the earth, the onboard radiometric calibration and the on-ground radiometric calibration with integrating sphere. The calculation model of the measurement error of the imaging spectrometer caused by the spectral calibration error is given. An imaging spectrometer used in marine satellite is given as an example, which uses a grating spectrometer and an array CCD to measure spectra from 400nm to 950nm. In the cases of different spectral calibration errors, the measurement errors in different seasons, solar altitude angles and surface albedoes while imaging to the north hemisphere mid-latitude area and the effects of the measurement errors on the water leaving irradiance retrieval accuracy are calculated for each band, the measurement errors while onboard radiometric calibration and the effects of the measurement errors on the absolute calibration accuracy are calculated for each band, and the measurement errors while on-ground radiometric calibration with integrating sphere and the effects of the measurement errors on the absolute calibration accuracy are calculated for each band. The spectral calibration error requirement of ±0.5nm is determined by calculation. The imaging spectrometer has good performances in this spectral calibration error.
