    Over the years, calibration monitoring techniques based on external sources have been developed, specifically calibration using the Sun and calibration based on ground clutter returns. In this paper, these two techniques are integrated and complemented with a self-consistency procedure and an intercalibration technique. A preliminary in-orbit vicarious calibration campaign was performed after launch to confirm pre-launch calibration results by assessing the spatial response non-uniformity of each sensor. Over time, detector sensitivity changes require new gain and offset values to correct the .

    Abstract Measuring the small changes associated with long-term global climate change from space is a daunting task. The satellite instruments must be capable of observing atmospheric temperature trends as small as degrees C / decade, ozone changes as little as 1 %/decade, and variations in the sun s output as tiny as % / decade. instruments would be seriously compromised. Intercalibration of satellite instruments is an effective way to reduce the dif-ferences among satellite instruments and, as a minimum, to estimate the scale of any residual uncertainty. For instruments without onboard calibration, the need for intercalibration is even more obvious.

    Hovis, with colleagues at NASA, developed a satellite sensor, the Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS), which was flown on Nimbus 7 in AVHRR and CZCS sensors proved capable of providing reliable data. Scientists then faced the challenge to radiometrically calibrate the sensors and improve their on-orbit radiometric accuracy. Two calibration techniques were developed in this research. First, a calibration technique, in which calibration was transferred to cirrus band and coastal aerosol band from well calibrated reflective bands of Landsat 8 using SCIAMACHY Deep Convective Cloud (DCC) spectra. Second, a novel method to derive relative gains using DCCs and improve the image quality of cirrus band scenes was developed.

Keywords: Vicarious calibration, inter-satellite calibration, GLI, MERIS, SeaWiFS, AVHRR 1 INTRODUCTION The two environmental monitoring satellites ENVISAT and ADEOS-2 were launched in sun-synchronous orbits recently, and calval phases for the sensors started with the overall goal to improve the accuracy of the remotely sensed data.

Recently, the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite 2 (ADEOS-2) was launched (Decem ) successfully, and the Global Imager (GLI) onboard the ADEOS-2 satellite. Sensor calibration, including its definition, purpose, traceability options, methodology, complexity, and importance, is examined in this paper in the context of supporting NOAA’s satellite mission.

Various sensors have been used to obtain the canopy spectral reflectance for monitoring above-ground plant nitrogen (N) uptake in winter wheat. Comparison and intercalibration of spectral reflectance and vegetation indices derived from different sensors are important for multi-sensor data fusion and utilization.

In this study, the spectral reflectance and its derived vegetation indices from. A simple technique for the inter-calibration of meteorological satellite sensors in the visible and near-infrared is described. The technique is based on using inter-relationships established using model simulations of the radiation measured at the top of the atmosphere by the reference and candidate sensors to transfer the calibration of the former to the latter, using a radiometrically.
