Paper Abstract

In this paper tradeoffs between speed and accuracy for the atmospheric correction of hyperspectral imagery are examined. Among the issues addressed are: the use of scattering calculations on a sparse spectral grid and consequent accuracy and speed tradeoffs; methods of minimizing the required number quadrature points in multiple scattering calculations; effects of the vertical profiles of aerosols and absorbing gases on atmospheric correction; and efficient approaches from including the effects of sensor variability, or imperfections, on atmospheric correction.
