AOT Retrieval Based on CR Algorithm Integrated with BRDF Model in Urban

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 141)

Abstract

In this paper, the urban BRDF model was applied to AOT inversion with the improved contrast reduction (CR) algorithm. The measured data from AERONET stations has been collected to validate the algorithm and evaluate the accuracy. Results show the AOT inversion can reach a high precision.
