Title: An airborne thermal remote sensing calibration technique
Author: Macleod, I. D.
Abstract: A calibration technique for airborne thermal remote sensing systems without the requirement for ground truth or multiple altitude measure ments is developed and evaluated. This technique is based on vertical and offset look angles and in effect corrects for image degradation due to atmospheric effects . The results were evaluated by comparison to a multiple altitude regression technique using previously generated imagery, and by statistical methods, including an error analysis. Assuming that the multiple altitude regression technique was exact, the error on apparent temperature produced by this angular technique was 0.32C.
