Remote optical detection of biomass burning using a potassium emission signature
(Taylor and Francis Ltd, 2002-07)
A remotely detectable signature for biomass burning that is specific to flaming combustion is found in the strong emission lines of potassium (K) at 766.5 nm and 769.9 nm. Ground level spectra of a test fire illustrate the ...
Synthetic image generation of chemical plumes for hyperspectral applications
(The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2000-04)
Remote sensing of factory stack plumes may provide unique information on the constituents of the plume. Potential information on the chemical composition of the factory products may be gathered from thermal emission/absorption ...
Remote sensing and GIS analysis of seagrass meadows in North Carolina, USA
(Elsevier: Aquatic Botany, 1997-10)
Seagrass meadows are a valuable and vulnerable resource which supports coastal fisheries. Spatial monitoring of seagrass meadows can improve coastal management and research with baseline inventories of change in location ...
Seasonal variation of CDOM in the Middle Atlantic Bight: terrestrial inputs and photooxidation
(The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), 1997-02)
Surveys of the fluorescence and absorption of chromophore-containing dissolved organic matter (CDOM) were made along a cruise line extending from the mouth of Delaware Bay southeast to the Sargasso Sea. With shallow ...
Incorporation of texture in multispectral synthetic image generation tools
(The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), 1995-06)
The Digital Imaging and Remote Sensing Synthetic Image Generation (DIRSIG) model emphasizes quantitative prediction of the radiance reaching sensors with bandpass values between 0.28 and 20.0 jim. The model embodies ...
Laser-induced fluorescence: Limits to the remote detection of hydrogen ion, aluminum, and dissolved organic matter
(Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam, 1989-07)
Laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in lake water is, to a certain extent, indicative of water quality. DOM fluorescence intensity varies directly with connentration of the fluorescing organic ...
Radiometric scene normalization using pseudoinvariant features
(Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam, 1988-10)
Correction of thermal imagery for atmospheric effects using aircraft measurement and atmospheric modeling techniques
(Optical Society of America (OSA), 1986-08)
Airborne measurements of atmospheric-path transmission and atmospheric-path (upwelled) radiance in the 8-14-gm band were obtained by applying a multiple altitude and a dual-view angle calibration technique to thermal IR ...
