1. Comparison of two methodologies for calibrating satellite instruments in the visible and near-infrared
Published: 12/10/2015
Authors: Steven W Brown, Keith R. Lykke, Robert A. Barnes, Bruce Guenther, James J Butler, Thomas Schwarting, David Moyer, Frank DeLuccia, Christopher Moeller
Abstract: Traditionally, satellite instruments that measure Earth-reflected solar radiation in the visible and near infrared wavelength regions have been calibrated for radiance responsivity in a two-step method. In the first step, the relative spectral respo ...

2. Improved thermal-vacuum compatible flat plate radiometric source for system-level testing of optical sensors
Published: 9/15/2015
Authors: Steven W Brown, Mark A. Schwarz, Craig J. Kent, Robert Bousquet
Abstract: This work describes the development of an improved vacuum compatible flat plate radiometric source used for characterizing and calibrating remote optical sensors, in situ, throughout their testing period. The original flat plate radiometric source ...

4. CALIBRATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF A SEAPRISM RADIOMETER FOR AERONET-OC
Published: 6/19/2015
Authors: Bettye C Johnson, Steven W Brown, John Taylor Woodward IV, Keith R. Lykke, Giuseppe Zibordi
Abstract: The global Aerosol Robotic Network for Ocean Color (AERONET-OC) program utilizes AERONET CE-318 sun photometers (termed ,SeaPRISMsŠ) modified for in-air observations of ocean waters situated on oil drilling rigs, off-shore lighthouses, or other platf ...

8. Stray light correction algorithm for multi-spectral hyperspectral spectrographs
Published: 6/1/2012
Authors: Michael Feinholz, Stephanie J Flora, Steven W Brown, Yuqin Zong, Keith R. Lykke, Mark A. Yarbrough, Bettye C Johnson, D. K. Clark
Abstract: An algorithm is developed to correct a multi-channel fiber-coupled spectrograph for stray or scattered light within the system. The efficacy of the algorithm is evaluated based on a series of validation measurements of sources with different spectra ...
