atmospheric correction

The correction made to remotely sensed radiance to reduce or normalize for the intervening atmosphere between the Earth's surface and the satellite. The product of an atmospheric correction is the Conversion of at-satellite spectral radiance to the innate Reflectance or Bidirectional reflectance of the surface. Also see radiometric reflective band calibration and reflectance. (Source: Dr. John Barker)
