Abstract

The atmospheric effects on radiometric data recorded in the Landsat bands are compiled for cases of representative and ideal atmospheric conditions. The effects are expressed as a difference between the Earth's surface spectral reflectivity, a0, and the surface-atmosphere system spectal reflectivity, as, derived from the satellite data. These effects on the monitoring of surface changes by the use of Landsat MSS data are discussed in terms of departures of the actual atmosphere at the time of a satellite passage from a minimal atmosphere having no aerosols and characterized by gaseous absorption corresponding to minimal water vapour amounts.-from Authors
