    Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object and thus in contrast to on-site observation, especially the Earth. Remote sensing is used in numerous fields, including geography, land surveying and most Earth science disciplines (for example, hydrology, ecology, meteorology, oceanography, glaciology, .

Brown b, Howard W. Yoon b, Robert A. Barnes c, Brian Size: KB. Radiometric calibration is a general term used in science and technology for any set of calibration techniques in support of the measurement of electromagnetic radiation and atomic particle radiation.

These can be for instance, in the field of Radiometry or the measurement of ionising radiation radiated from a source. Radiometric calibration is converting the DN in satellite images into a physical value (irradiance and Top of Atmosphere reflectance TOA) and to convert it into radiance we need the gain and.

This work concentrates on the representative research on sensing systems that can find alive people under rubble when an earthquake or other disasters occur. In this paper, various operating principles and system architectures for finding survivors using the microwave radar sensors are reviewed.

A comparison between these systems is also discussed. The calibration of multispectral and hyperspectral imaging systems is typically done in the laboratory using an integrating sphere, which usually produces a signal that is red rich.

Using such a source to calibrate environmental monitoring systems presents some difficulties. Not only is much of the calibration data outside the range and spectral quality of data values that are.
