Abstract

By the definition given in [94], the transfer operator transforms the atmosphere-induced distortions into real brightnesses of objects and of backgrounds. The actual content of a transfer function is much more complicated, since the functions of the transformation of the brightness of an object, viewed at different angles and with different combinations of objects in a given scene, will be different. This is determined by the horizontal inhomogeneity of the atmosphere and Earth’s surface as well as by the different extent of non-orthotropicity of natural objects.
