Paper Abstract

The visible and reflected infrared channels of the NOAA-7 Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) are used for environmental monitoring, including agricultural crop assessment. An index consisting of a combination of digital data from these channels is used to screen the AVHRR data for cloud. In this paper, we consider the effects on spectral signature of sub-pixel sized cloud, which does not fill the entire IFOV of the instrument. It is shown that, for two different targets, for clear and turbid atmospheric conditions and for various scan angles, cloud which would not be detected during the screening process will cause substantial effects (up to a five-fold decrease) in the data.
