Paper Abstract

The Advanced Space-borne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) and theModerate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) onboard Terra satellite, which have different spatial resolution, can observe the earth surface simultaneously. Both of these sensors have been operated more than 10 years, and it is very useful for cross-calibration because of their simultaneous observations mostly without BRDF effect. On the other hand, the CEOS IVOS group arranges the pseudo-invariant standard test sites for cross-calibration, which are able to evaluate the long-term stability among multiple sensors. This paper shows the TOA reflectance comparison between ASTER and MODIS sensor over the CEOS pseudo-invariant standard test sites.
