The absolute radiometric calibration of the NS thematic mapper simulator reflective channels was examined based on laboratory tests and in-flight comparisons to ground by: 2. the uncertainty of the absolute radiometric calibration for each band of the sensor.

In-flight absolute radiometric calibration is a highly reliable vicarious calibration method that depends on in situ measure-ments of surface and atmospheric parameters [5]. During the in situ measurement, the surface reflectance, aerosol optical.

Slater, P. Teillet, Y. Ding. The Landsat-7 Image Assessment System (IAS), part of the Landsat-7 Ground System, will calibrate and evaluate the radiometric and geometric performance of the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM +) instrument. The IAS incorporates new instrument radiometric artifact correction and absolute radiometric calibration techniques which overcome some limitations to.

No MSS sensors were included on either satellite. Landsat 6 failed on launch. The L7 ETM+ sensor has a spatial resolution of 30 m for the six reflective bands, 60 m for the thermal band, and includes a panchromatic (pan) band with a 15 m resolution.

Landsat-7 is currently being built and tested for launch in The Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) sensor for Landsat-7, a derivative of the highly successful Thematic Mapper (TM) sensors on Landsats 4 and 5, and the Landsat-7 ground system are being built to provide enhanced radiometric calibration performance.
