Modified Algorithm of Atmospheric Correction for MODIS Satellite Data

Likhacheva M.V., Sheberstov S.V., Kopelevich O.V.

New approach to MODIS data processing, joined of algorithm for sun glint area and low-parametric algorithm of atmospheric correction is presented. Software package processing MODIS imagery has been developed. Validation of this algorithm with in situ measurements of the water radiance reflectance ρ(λ) in most cases shows better accuracy then the SeaDAS 6.1 data as in the presence of sun glint and without glint. As a result of applying of new algorithm, the area of solving the inverse problem increased.
