Imaging Spectrqmetry - Its Present And Future RÔLe In Environmental Research

  • Paul J. Curran
Part of the Eurocourses: Remote Sensing book series (EURS, volume 4)

Abstract

A basic aim of remote sensing is to identify and characterise objects on the Earth’s surface by means of radiation that has interacted with that surface. In the optical region of the spectrum this could best be achieved using an imaging spectrometer that records a finely-sampled and continuous spectrum of radiation over the entire 400 run to 2400 nm wavelength range.

This chapter outlines the airborne imaging spectrometers of today and the space borne imaging spectrometers of tommorow, the techniques for processing data from imaging spectrometers and the roles that imaging spectrometry is finding in geological, aquatic, ecological and atmospheric research.
