Analyzes the relationships between field-based and space-based soil observations taking into account sensor wavebands, atmosphere, and sun-target-sensor geometric effects. Also the use of atmospheric correction and bidirectional reflectance models in the interpretation of the satellite signal received by major space- and airborne sensor systems. Fine and coarse spectra are utilized from such sensors as the Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and Multispectral Scanner (MSS); Satellite pour l'Observation de la Terre (SPOT); and the aircraft-based Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) and Advanced Solid-state Array Spectroradiometer (ASAS). Future sensor systems such as SPOT-VEGETATION, Landsat 7, and the Earth Observing System (EOS) sensors are also discussed. There are abridged French and Spanish versions.
