Paper Abstract

The spatial and statistical properties of the radiance over a scene of natural terrain is of importance while a target detection algorithm is developed [1]. In geological studies the use of I.R. imaging is in-creasing and the understanding of the image is of significance L2]. One dimensional measurements and anal-ysis of the thermal image of natural terrain was performed by Itakura and his coworkers [3]. In this study a model was proposed, describing the statistics of the radiance over a given scene and the one dimensional power spectra of it. The main claims were generally validated by later work of the ERIM group [4,5].
