Three techniques are described for the extraction of surface emissivity and compositional information from Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) images. Synthetic images were constructed with different atmospheric properties and random and systematic errors to estimate the uncertainty in the retrieved surface emissivity. The three techniques are as follows: (1) A constant radiance removal algorithm determines and removes a constant radiance from atmospheric emission as well as systematic calibration ra…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
