AbstractThe present investigation evaluates surface reflectance retrieved from Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) and Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (casiTM) data using the atmospheric radiative transfer (RT) codes: ATREM, CAM5S, and MODTRAN4. The retrieved surface reflectances were compared with ground-based reflectances acquired with a GER3700TM spectroradiometer for a playa and canola target. The results showed that the best overall performance was achieved with MODTRAN4, followed by ATREM and CAM5S. Major differences occur in the stronger gas absorption regions. At wavelengths unaffected by strong gaseous absorption, the performance was similar for the three RT codes even though ATREM and CAM5S have faster execution times.
