Paper Abstract

The problem of taking into account the effect of polarization is considered for correction of satellite images of the Erath’s surface in the visible wavelength range for the distorting effect of the atmosphere. A program complex for calculation of the radiation components forming the satellite images has been developed with and without allowance for radiation polarization in the approximation of the homogeneous surface. Conditions are considered under which the neglect of polarization properties of radiation can lead to significant errors in reconstruction of the reflection coefficients of weakly reflecting surfaces.
