Co-retrieval of Aerosol and Surface Reflectance: Analysis of Daily US SeaWiFS Data for 2000-2002 Sean Raffuse, Erin Robinson and Rudolf B. Husar CAPITA, Washington University Presented at A&WMA’s 97 th Annual Conference and Exhibition June 22-27, Indianapolis, IN
The 8 sensors are in the transmission windows in the visible & near IR
Designed for ocean color but also suitable for land color detection, particularly of vegetation
Chlorophyll Absorption Designed for Vegetation Detection Swath 2300 KM 24/day Polar Orbit: ~ 1000 km, 100 min. Equator Crossing: Local Noon
Aerosol effects on surface color and Surface effects on aerosol color The image was synthesized from the blue (0.412 μm), green (0.555 μm), and red (0.67 μm) channels of the 8 channel SeaWiFS sensor. Air scattering has been removed to highlight the haze and surface reflectance.
