Abstract:

Algorithms for reconstruction of the Earth's surface reflection coefficient from the data of satellite measurements are suggested. They allow the main components of radiation, forming an Earth's surface image, to be taken into account with different degrees of accuracy. The algorithms involve a solution of the radiative transfer equation with the use of the linear system theory, Monte Carlo method, approximation formulas, and criterion of image isoplanarity. The algorithms are validated based on numerical experiments and comparisons with results of calculations by other authors.

Keywords:
