A Normalization Scheme of Bidirectional Reflectances and Normalized Vegetation Indices for Short-Term Multi-Angular Spot Satellite Images

Chien-Hui Liu
2003 Journal of Marine Science and Technology  
This scheme will correct both atmospheric and bidirectional effect for short-term multi-temporal SPOT data. Five SPOT images scanned within twelve days are used.  ...  This may be due to the effectiveness of SAVI in the reduction of viewing zenith angle effect induced by the soil and shadow and the error of the atmospheric correction model.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This study was financially supported by the National Science Council of the Republic of China (grant No. NSC91-2212-E-265-001).  ...
