A GIS application is needed to open this type of file. The pixel values are proportional to % reflectance, with a pixel value of being equal to % reflectance ( is equal to % reflectance). In order to extract the reflectance values you will need to divide by

    Albedo (/ æ l ˈ b iː d oʊ /) (Latin: albedo, meaning 'whiteness') is the measure of the diffuse reflection of solar radiation out of the total solar radiation and measured on a scale from 0, corresponding to a black body that absorbs all incident radiation, to 1, corresponding to a body that reflects all incident radiation.. Surface albedo is defined as the ratio of radiosity to the. Apparent reflectance is a ratio and its native output range is For display purposes, in this function, the ratio is multiplied by , and the output is therefore stretched from to When using default 8-bit unsigned integer output data type, the value is rounded down to integers.

Reflectance characteristics of uniform earth and cloud surfaces derived from Nimbus-7 ERB: Authors: Taylor, V on the reflectance characteristics of terrestrial surfaces is investigated in data obtained with the Nimbus-7 earth-radiation-budget (ERB) instrument on 61 days during and a change from limb darkening to limb.

For creating simple cloud-free Landsat composites, Earth Engine provides the Composite () method. This method selects a subset of scenes at each location, converts to TOA reflectance, applies the simple cloud score and takes the median of the least cloudy pixels.

This example creates a simple composite using. Approximating Landsat Surface Reflectance Previous White Papers have described the concept of Top of Atmosphere (TOA) Reflectance.

TOA reflectance is a unitless number that can be computed from satellite spectral radiance, the earth-sun distance in astronomical units, the mean solar exoatmospheric irradiance and the solar zenith Size: 86KB.

Reflectance of the surface of a material is its effectiveness in reflecting radiant is the fraction of incident electromagnetic power that is reflected at an interface.

The reflectance spectrum or spectral reflectance curve is the plot of the reflectance as a function of wavelength. Anisotropic reflectance characteristics of natural Earth surfaces.

When viewing and illumination directions are fixed, sur- face appearance can be described by either reflectance (at coarse-scale observation) or texture (at fine-scale observation).

When viewing and illumination direc- tions vary, the equivalent descriptions are the bidirec. Spectral response patterns are sometimes called spectral signatures. This term is misleading, however, because the reflectance of an entity varies with its condition, the time of year, and even the time of day.

Instead of thin lines, the spectral responses of water, soil, grass, and trees might better be depicted as wide swaths to account for.

Attenuated Total Reflectance Spectroscopy of Polymers: Theory and Author: Marek W. Urban. Landsat 8: Greater than 1 Reflectance Values When the DN values were converted to the TOA reflectance values, there were pixels with reflectivity greater than 1.

Unlike negative reflectivity, objects that have reflectivity greater than 1 are not unnatural. Circumstances that would lead to the observance of reflectivity greater than 1 are: 1.

This page links to the extensive data files of the surface reflectance factors described in Mobley () and Mobley ().The first paper discusses the problems inherent in estimating the remote-sensing reflectance from measurements of the sky and ocean radiance made from just above the sea surface.

That paper used Cox-Munk sea surfaces and unpolarized ray tracing to compute factors, which. 1 1 Preliminary analysis of the performance of the Landsat 8/OLI land surface 2 reflectance product 3 4 Eric Vermote1, Chris Justice2, Martin Claverie2,1, Belen Franch2,1 5 6 1NASA/GSFC CodeGreenbelt, MD, USA 7 2University of Maryland, Dept.

In this beta release, Surface Reflectance data is available globally from October 1,and in select agricultural regions of North America from Planet knows that having more satellites than anyone else is only half the battle, and that collecting and making the data from those satellites available and useful to customers is the most.
