Paper Abstract

AVNIR is a high spatial resolution imager on ADEOS with four multispectral bands and one panchromatic band covering the visible and the near-infrared range. AVNIR also has multi- view angle observation (pointing) function with the range of plus or minus 40 degrees from nadir. These two characteristics of AVNIR, high spatial resolution observation and stereoscopic observation, enable it to produce high quality land cover/use maps and digital elevation models (DEM). Besides these two practical products AVNIR is expected to observe scientific parameters including space reflectance and surface reflectance which would play an important role in assessing the radiation budget at the earth surface. Also AVNIR is expected to produce several science data sets for monitoring coastal environment, volcanic activities as well as terrestrial ecosystems.
