Paper Abstract

An approach for evaluation of the Radiometric Quality of Landsat 4/5 Thematic Mapper Band 6 data is presented. The approach involves comparison of measured surface temperatures with surface temperatures predicted from observed satellite radiances propagated to the ground using the LOWTRAN 5A model. The atmospheric propagation data and surface temperatures are also compared with atmospheric propagation measurements and surface temperatures measured during an aircraft undertlight of the satellite.
