scene LC80340432018162LGN00, June_11th_2018

WARNING: the optical calibration does not account 
for complex optical properties in the channel

Thick haze is well deglinted
Overcast skies <==> CoefK~=0.0

Data and Deglinting

TOA TCC: raw image
logarithmic enhancement

BOA TCC deglinted image
logarithmic enhancement

Deglinting of haze is excellent
Dense fog remains
Glint regressions using SWIR1

R2 values are very high
There is no noticeable sun/sky glint,
but rather thick and variable haze/fog

15 m resampling does not increase noise
Special effect mask mSE
Location of Profile_RED
backdrop is a TCC of deglinted data

  • turquoise rectangle: shapefile dLsw.shp is shown: 
    • this is where deep water radiance is adjusted,
    •  just over waypoint B1 of Profile_red
  • Profile Yellow is also shown

Radiances along Profile_Red

Optical calibration for the whole image
This calibration does not account
for the complex optical properties in the channel

Calibration for the whole image
for bands Blue, Green, Red and NIR


Calibration for the whole
for bands Blue, Green, PAN, and NIR


Ready for modeling

To convert BOAWCC radiances
into calibrated reflectances
BlueRefectance    =    BlueBOAWCC*0.211/250
GreenRefectance  =  GreenBOAWCC*0.281/250
Maximum shallow bottom reflectance (0-1)
for coral sands

Coral sand is approx twice brighter
than brightest sands in this scene.

15 m GSD, smart-smoothed
  • not_PANsharpened: sharpening becomes redundant/pointless, thanks to:
    • improved co-registration of the PANchromatic band with the MULTI bands (might still be improved further)
    • combined with 15 m resampling of MULTI bands to match the PANchro GSD
  • smart-smoothing then becomes desirable/necessary
