Calibration, validation and the NERC Airborne Remote Sensing Facility

Milton, Edward J., Fox, Nigel and Mackin, Stephen (2004) Calibration, validation and the NERC Airborne Remote Sensing Facility At Annual Conference of the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society. 07 - 10 Sep 2004. 5 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The application of airborne and satellite remote sensing to terrestrial applications has been dominated by empirically-based, semi-quantitative approaches, in contrast to those developed in the marine and atmospheric sciences which have often developed from rigorous physically-based models. Furthermore, the traceability of EO data and the methodological basis of many applications has often been taken for granted, with the result that the repeatability of analyses and the reliability of many terrestrial EO products can be questioned. ‘NCAVEO’ is a recently established network of Earth Observation experts and data users committed to exchanging knowledge and understanding in the area of remote sensing data calibration and validation. It aims to provide a UK-based forum to collate available knowledge and expertise associated with the calibration and validation of EO-based products from both UK and overseas providers, in different discipline areas including land, ocean and atmosphere. This paper will introduce NCAVEO and highlight some of the contributions it hopes to make to airborne remote sensing in the UK.
