Linear Spectral Mixture Analysis of Hyperspectral Images with Atmospheric Distortions

  • 1176 Accesses

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNIP,volume 9972)


In this paper a novel method of linear spectral mixture parameters estimation for hyperspectral images is proposed. This method allows to omit preliminary atmospheric correction of input image. To provide a solution to mixture problem different models of radiation transmission in atmosphere are considered. An evaluation of effect of noise, number of input pixels and number of signatories on accuracy of restored linear mixture coefficients and input pixel representation error is provided.
