Paper Abstract

The factors affecting the spectral composition of radiation reaching a distant observer from a natural object, and thus determining its apparent color, are experimentally studied. A method to calculate the apparent color is examined in which the spectral radiance of a distant object is first measured at zero distance and variations in the apparent radiance are then studied as a function of the distance. Sample results are given.
