Basics of Visible and Infrared Remote Sensing

Basics of Visible and Infrared Remote Sensing
  • Identify the Meteosat First Generation imager channels and describe applications of each channel
  • Describe the concept of radiation and the relationship between radiance and reflected solar and earth-emitted energy
  • Describe reflected solar and terrestrial radiation as they relate to satellite observations
  • Explain how solar and terrestrial radiation is selectively absorbed, reflected, and scattered by atmospheric constituents
  • Explain the processes of radiative transfer
  • Explain selective absorption through the atmosphere
