Paper Abstract

This paper presents results from the ATSR-2 atmospheric Correction EXperiment (ACEX), a collaborative campaign between CSIRO and the University of Nottingham held at two uniform land sites in Australia in April and May 1997 in which the surface-leaving radiance was measured in the three VIS/NIR bands of the ATSR-2 sensor as it passed over aboard the ERS-2 satellite. The sites, which are permanently instrumented to monitor the surface radiation budget components, and the campaign instruments, measurement procedure and analysis are described. The results agree with other calibrations of the ATSR-2 shortwave channels to within a few percent.
