IEEE TGRS Special Issue on “Inter-Calibration of Satellite Instruments”By admin • Oct 5th, 2011 • Category: News
Guest Editors: Gyanesh Chander, Tim Hewison, Nigel Fox, Xiangqian (Fred) Wu, Xiaoxiong (Jack) Xiong, William J. Blackwell
This special journal issue will focus on how inter-calibration and comparison between sensors can provide an effective and convenient means of verifying post-launch sensor performance and correcting the differences. The guest editors invite submissions that explore topics including, but not limited to, pseudo-invariant calibration sites, instrumented sites, simultaneous nadir observations and other ray-matching comparisons, lunar and stellar observations, deep convective clouds, liquid water clouds, Rayleigh scattering and Sun glint. The inter-calibration results should focus on rigorous quantification of bias and associated sources of uncertainty from different sensors, crucial for long-term studies of the Earth. The goal of this special journal issue is to capture the state-of-the-art methodologies and results from inter-calibration of satellite instruments, including full end-to-end uncertainty analysis. Accordingly, it will become a reference anthology for the remote sensing community.
Paper submission deadline: 31 January 2012
