Field radiometric measurements for validation and calibration of airborne data : Relevant aspects with the EISAC '89 campaign
The development of CDD sensor technology has opened up the new field of imaging spectroscopy. The objectives of the 1989 EISAC (European Imaging Spectroscopy Airborne Campaign) were: a) to promote research by several European institutes in the field of high spectral resolution applied to agriculture, forests, sea and geology; b) to acquire the necessary information for chosing the most suitable sensors for future polar platforms, and c) to develop competences and prepare users for the digital processing and analysis of the large mass of spectral data expected when these systems become operative. This paper describes the preliminary inter-calibration measurements carried out in the DLR laboratory in Munich by the various teams involved, the activities of the JRC radiometric group at its two test sites in the North Adriatic Sea (in part of the Po delta) and in the Upper Rhine Valley, around Colmar (France). Finally, the measurements for atmospheric corrections, which are common to both sites, are outlined.
