Paper Abstract

The concept of imaging spectrometry was originated from geological communities in the early 1980s. The Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) built at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory has been collecting spectral imaging data in the 0.4 - 2.5 micron region from an ER-2 aircraft at 20 km for a decade. Newer generations of airborne and spaceborne imaging spectrometers have also been built. In this paper, techniques, such as spectral matching and channel ratioing for extracting information on the Earth's atmosphere and surfaces are illustrated. Examples of using the technique of imaging spectrometry for remote sensing of atmospheric water vapor, cirrus clouds, aerosols, fire, land surface properties, and ocean color are presented. The applications of imaging spectrometry to the selection and implementation of new channels on the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) for global remote sensing of atmospheric water vapor and cirrus clouds from space are also described.
