Paper Abstract

This paper presents the results of a field experiment that was carried out in order to verify a physical model which describes the relationship between the optical properties of the atmosphere and the characteristics of an imaging system. The model depicts how different components of the light that are reaching the imaging system, after passing through the atmosphere, are detected by it. The measurements were done using a scanning point radiometer, while a local meteorological station measured the properties of the atmosphere. Theoretical predictions, which were achieved using a Monte-Carlo simulation of atmospheric scattering effects, are compared with the experimental data acquired in the field test. Comparison of theoretical predictions, using the above model, with the experimental data of other researchers is included. Both our data and the results of Luc Bissonnette of Canada supports the suggested model.
