Paper Abstract

The spectral signature of a material is the curve of power density vs. wavelength (λ) obtained from measurements of reflected light. It is used, among other things, for the identification of targets in remotely acquired images. Sometimes, however, unpredictable distortions may prevent this. In only a few cases have such distortions been explained. We propose some reasonable arguments that in a significant number of circumstances, atmospheric turbulence may contribute to such spectral signature distortion. We propose, based on this model, what appears to be one method that could combat such distortion.
