Calibration of Orbital Sensors

Flávio Jorge Ponzoni , Cibele Teixeira Pinto , Rubens Augusto Camargo Lamparelli , Jurandir Zullo Junior , Mauro Antonio Homem Antunes

The calibration of sensors is essential to obtain reliable data, particularly in sophisticated qualitative studies, such as productivity estimate for crops or quantification of biophysical parameters for forests.

Calibration of orbital sensors explains in a clear and straightforward language the most important radiometric concepts, the functioning of a sensor and the main calibration procedures. It includes practical and detailed examples, from mission site analysis and most commonly used sensors to fieldwork and data processing.
