Paper Abstract

Ways are described to minimize errors when the Planck law is used for single- and two-color temperature measurements. Various approximations useful in remote sensing are discussed, as well as a suggested method for measuring temperature and emissivity simultaneously with active and passive systems at each of two wave-lengths. Measurements at multiple wavelengths are also presented in this mathematical discussion.
