NITHIANANDAM, J, GUENTHER, BW, ALLISON, LJ (1993). AN ANECDOTAL REVIEW OF NASA EARTH OBSERVING SATELLITE REMOTE SENSORS AND RADIOMETRIC CALIBRATION METHODS. METROLOGIA, 30(4), 207-212.
An anecdotal history of the evolution of satellite remote sensors for making Earth observations in the infrared, visible and ultraviolet spectral regions during the past three decades at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is presented together with an intercomparison of the earlier scanning remote sensors and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) of the Earth Observing System (EOS) project. Developments in the pre-launch and in-flight radiometric calibration systems and techniques for these satellite remote scanners, sounders and television imagers are highlighted.
