Paper Abstract

Atmospheric transmittance is not only an important physical parameter which affects radiation of ground, but also the main study object in remote sensing, atmosphere physics and radiation transfer. During the range of the solar spectrum, gaseous absorption is mainly related to water vapor, carbon dioxide, ozone, nitrous oxide, carbon monoxide, methane, and oxygen (H2O, CO2, O3, N2O, CO, CH4 and O2). The article studies on atmospheric transmittance based on random exponential band models. Then make use of Modtran to analyze and validate the results using the same atmospheric parameters of random exponential band models. So it will lay a foundation for regressing and fitting the polynomials to calculate atmospheric transmittance, and application on Daily BRDF/ Albedo Algorithm in future.
