Paper Abstract

To derive the earth surface (ocean) parameters quantitatively, a contamination of the atmospheric constituents is to be eliminated. Especially VNIR on ASTER provides data with respect to surface characteristics with a fine spacial resolution of 15 m. In this case, the adjacency effect due to the inhomogeneous surface on satellite data should be included in the investigation. At present, right after the launch the version 3 of the atmospheric correction algorithm is scheduled to be inclusive of this effect. Based on the simulation of atmospheric effects on the emergent radiation over a checkerboard type of terrain, an operational procedure of the atmospheric correction is outlined. The present new version enables us to quantitatively discuss radiative transfer over the non- uniform surface. The look-up-table method is used for the derivation of parameters.
