Paper Abstract

Initial on-orbit calibration results of the advanced visible and near infrared radiometer (AVNIR) onboard ADEOS were presented. When ADEOS returned over the Japan ground station mask on Sept. 1, 1996, AVNIR was first activated to evaluate performance. AVNIR calibration was then conducted using the reference signal sources (internal lamps, natural target data, NASA's airborne sensor data, etc.). The evaluation indicated that AVNIR has sufficient sensitivity to function as a high- resolution imager and is useful for the land monitoring, though some noises are to be removed.
