Paper Abstract

Electro-optical field measurements of scene reflectance, together with appropriate target characterization, will play an increasingly important role in the testing, intercomparison, and extension of scene radiation models. Such models, in turn, will serve to extrapolate the range of applicability of field measurements to a wider set of environmental conditions and sensor/source viewing geometries than could practically be obtained by direct measure-ment. This paper presents several issues which must be addressed before such a symbiotic relationship between modeling and measurement approaches can be achieved. The direct comparison of model predictions with field measurements is seen to be a somewhat more subtle task than might be suspected.
