Paper Abstract

Remote sensing data obtained from satellites such as LANDSAT 1 and 2 have prove° to be very useful for earth resources management. However, efficient interpretation and effective utilisation of data can ue achieved only with the support of the ancillary data obtained under 'in situ' conditions. For this, a number of spectro-rauiumeters ranging from simple band to continuous data recording systems are used. But oue to the instrumentation limitations, these can be used only in limited areas. In the present paper, a continuous spectral signature collecting system using all fibre optical system is describeo. It is seen that such an instrument can be used for recording data from objects ranging from 2 to 2 sq.m. and in the range from 0.4 to 1.1 microns with variable spectral resolutions. besides, the spectral signature collection, this all fibre optic radiometer finds extensive applications in other biomeuical and physical sciences.
