21. Rapid and precise absolute distance measurements at long range
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 6/1/2009
Authors: Ian R Coddington, William C Swann, Ljerka Nenadovic, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: The ability to determine absolute distance to an object is one of the most basic measurements of remote sensing. High precision ranging has important applications in both large-scale manufacturing and in future tight formation-flying satellite missio ...

22. Towards a Remote Sensing Capability for Life s Chiral Signature using Circular Polarization
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 5/12/2009
Authors: William Sparks, James H. Hough, Thomas Avery Germer, Feng Chen, Shiladitya DasSarma, Priya DasSarma, Frank Robb, Neill Reid, Nadine Manset, Ludmilla Kolokolova, F. D. Macchetto, William Martin, Ed Turner
Abstract: The unique macroscopic homochirality of biological material offers the prospect of being detectable remotely using circular polarization. To explore this concept, we present spectropolarimetry of primitive photosynthetic microbial organisms. The refl ...

23. Circular Polarization in Scattered Light as a Possible Biomarker
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 3/2/2009
Authors: Thomas Avery Germer, William Sparks, James H. Hough, Ludmilla Kolokolova, Feng Chen, Shiladitya DasSarma, Priya DasSarma, Frank Robb, Nadine Manset, Neill Reid, F. D. Macchetto, William Martin
Abstract: Biological molecules exhibit homochirality and are optically active. Therefore, it is possible that the scattering of light by biological molecules might result in a macroscopic signature in the form of circular polarization. If this is the case, the ...

24. Downwelling Surface Spectral Irradiance Measurements with the Marine Optical BuoY
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 12/31/2008
Authors: Bettye C Johnson, M Feinholz, S Flora, M Yarbrough, Terrance Houlihan, D Peters, Dennis Clark
Abstract: The Marine Optical BuoY (MOBY), off the coast of Lanai, Hawaii, has made in situ, in-water up-welling spectral radiance and downwelling surface spectral irradiance measurements since July 1997. The MOBY observatory concept was developed and implemen ...

25. The Marine Optical BuoY (MOBY) Radiometric Calibration and Uncertainty Budget for Ocean Color Satellite Sensor Vicarious Calibration
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 12/31/2008
Authors: M Feinholz, Bettye C Johnson, Steven W Brown, S Flora, M Yarbrough, Terrance Houlihan, D Peters, Yong S. Kim, J Mueller, Dennis Clark
Abstract: For the past decade, the Marine Optical Buoy (MOBY), an autonomous radiometric buoy stationed in the waters off Lanai, Hawaii, has been the primary in-water oceanic observatory for the vicarious calibration of the U. S. satellite ocean color sensors ...

26. Calibration of the spectral radiant power responsivity of windowed pyroelectric radiometers from 785 nm to 14 ¿m
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 9/16/2008
Authors: Leonard M Hanssen, Jinan Zeng
Abstract: As part of the optical detector characterization program at the Optical Technology Division at NIST, we have established a capability for the calibration of spectral radiant power responsivity in the infrared from 785 nm to 14 μm. We have ...

27. Derivation of the MODIS Aqua Point-Spread Function for Ocean Color Bands
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 9/11/2008
Authors: Gerhard Meister, Yuqin Zong, Charles R. McClain
Abstract: The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua platform has 9 spectral bands with center wavelengths from 412nm to 870nm that are used to produce the standard ocean color data products. Ocean scene ...

28. Measurement science for climate remote sensing
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 8/20/2008
Authors: Gerald T Fraser, Steven W Brown, Raju Vsnu Datla, Bettye C Johnson, Keith R Lykke, Joseph Paul Rice
Abstract: The Earth s climate is very complex and highly variable, making it difficult to measure and model small changes that occur over decadal and longer time scales. The resulting uncertainties in measurement and modeling underlie the longterm debate over ...

29. Experimental Line Parameters of the Oxygen A-Band Using Frequency-Stabilized Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 1/1/2008
Authors: D J Robichaud, Joseph Terence Hodges, Linda R. Brown, D Lisak, Piotr Maslowski, Charles E Miller
Abstract: Line intensities, self- and air-broadened linewidths, pressure-induced shifts, and collisional narrowing coefficients were measured from 18 <= J' <= 32 in the P branch of the O2 A-band (12,975 13,055 cm^(-1)). Spectra were recorded using the freque ...

30. Semi-Classical Line Shape Models of Rovibrational H2O Spectra Tested Using Frequency-Stabilized Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 6/20/0008
Authors: Joseph Terence Hodges, Daniel Lisak, R. Ciurylo
Abstract: In this work we present a brief review of recent results for water line shapes obtained by means of the frequency stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy (FS-CRDS) technique. We demonstrate its ability to enable precise spectroscopic measurements o ...
