Towards a comparison of spaceborne and ground-based spectrodirectional reflectance data


Schopfer, Jürg; Huber, S; Odermatt, Daniel; Schneider, T; Dorigo, Wouter; Oppelt, Natascha; Koetz, Benjamin; Kneubühler, Mathias; Itten, Klaus I (2007). Towards a comparison of spaceborne and ground-based spectrodirectional reflectance data. In: Envisat Symposium 2007, Montreux (CH), 23 April 2007 - 27 April 2007, online.

Abstract

Almost all natural surfaces exhibit an individual anisotropic reflectance behaviour due to the contrast between the optical properties of surface elements and background and the geometric surface properties of the observed scene. The resulting bidirectional effects are present in all reflectance data and thus occur as well in various vegetation indices (VI’s) retrieved from multiangular data. No matter whether these effects are considered as noise or as a source of additional information, accurate knowledge about their magnitude is important.
This preliminary study is based on data of the spaceborne ESA-mission CHRIS (Compact High Resolution Imaging Spectrometer) onboard PROBA-1 and on ground-based spectrodirectional measurements performed with the dual view field goniometer system FIGOS. The objectives of this study are focused on directional effects in CHRIS and FIGOS reflectance data of a Triticale field as well as on the variability of retrieved vegetation indices for selected view angles in both multiangular datasets.
