Abstract

Although published sea surface infrared (IR) emissivity models have gained widespread acceptance for remote sensing applications, discrepancies have been identified against field observations obtained from IR Fourier transform spectrometers at view angles 40 ° . We therefore propose, in this two-part paper, an alternative approach for calculating surface-leaving IR radiance that treats both emissivity and atmospheric reflection in a systematic yet practical manner. This first part presents the theoretical basis, development, and computations of the proposed model.
