Abstract

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA's) Earth Observing System (EOS) Project Science Office has sponsored a number of radiometric measurement comparisons with the main purpose of validating the radiometric scale assigned to the integrating spheres by the instrument builders. This article describes the radiometric measurement comparisons, the use of stable transfer radiometers to perform the measurements, and the measurement approaches and protocols used to validate integrating sphere radiances.
