Paper Abstract

A two-stage procedure for correcting and restoring images of the Earth's underlying surface, recorded by AVHRR instruments placed onboard the NOAA satellites, is considered for some situations observed in the fall and spring. At the first stage (data correction), a method of histogram transformation is used to eliminate the effect of semi-transparent cloudiness. At the second stage (reconstruction), an approach based on the data reconstruction with the help of nonparametric regression dependences is used to eliminate shadowing effect of clouds. Some examples of correcting and restoring real images recorded with the AVHRR instrument are given.
