We provide experimental data confirming the power-law spatial-correlation model of radiance statistics for a wide range of natural terrains and in two IR wave bands. We analyze imagery of four terrains that was acquired from an airborne sensor in both midwave and long-wave bands. Data are presented on the region of the correlation-model parameter space occupied by natural terrains.
