12. 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 ...

13. 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 ...

14. 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 ...

15. High- Resolution Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy Measurements of Blended H^d2^0 Transitions
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 1/1/0007
Authors: D Lisak, Joseph Terence Hodges
Abstract: We probed four closely spaced rovibrational water vapor absorption transitions near wavenumber = 7100 cm(^-1) using frequency-stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy. Room-temperature spectra were acquired for pure water vapor in the Doppler limit a ...

16. High-Precision Pressure Shifting Measurement Technique Using Frequency-Stabilized Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 1/1/0008
Authors: D J Robichaud, Joseph Terence Hodges, D Lisak, Charles E Miller, Mitchio Okumura
Abstract: We describe a high-precision method for measuring pressure shifting of absorption lines. The technique involves the acquisition of high-resolution spectra using a cavity ring-down spectrometer whose length is continuously locked to a frequency-stabil ...

17. High-Resolution Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy of H216O at 10687.36 cm-1
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 2/11/0004
Author: Joseph Terence Hodges
Abstract: We describe a frequency-stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy apparatus enabling high-resolution line shape measurements of water vapor. The measured line strength and broadening parameter for the H216O transition at 10687.36 cm-1 are compared to ...

19. Lunar Spectral Irradiance and radiance (LUSI): new instrumentation to characterize the Moon as a space-based radiometric standard
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 117.011
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 7/17/2012
Authors: Allan W. Smith, Steven Ray Lorentz, Raju Vsnu Datla, Thomas C. Stone
Abstract: The need to understand and monitor climate change has led to proposed radiometric accuracy requirements for space-based remote-sensing instruments that are very stringent and currently beyond the reach of many Earth orbiting instruments. A major ...
