Abstract

Work is reported in which a series of cloud-free portions of digital imagery obtained over the Great Plains area of the U.S.A. by the NOAA advanced very high resolution radiometer (AVHRR) throughout the crop growing season were examined in order to study date-dependent and scan-angle-dependent variations in recorded radiance in each sensor channel. Combinations of radiance recorded in different channels (vegetative indices; VINs) were also studied. The problem of atmospheric variation between acquisitions is discussed and some suggestions are made for work which may further improve cloud screening procedures and which may result in vegetation indices which are less affected by atmospheric effects.
