Paper Abstract

Briefly remote sensing imaging system is a synthetical system which has a scene as its input and an image as its output. From a conceptual or philosophic point of view, a chain of events, including both remote sensing instrument and others such as atmospheric influence lead to the final output. Focusing on the aspect of the full chain, it could not get improvement using unjustified effort and time. The radiance, which the remote sensing system receives, can be divided into three parts when taking into account the atmosphere: L=Lp+Ld+Lc, where Lp is path radiance, Ld is the radiance directly from target, Lc is the cross radiance caused by adjacency effect. In this paper we try to explain the effect, which is due to adjacency effect and path radiance, on image quality of space imaging systems by using the simulated method combining Monte-Carlo method and MODTRAN 4.0.
