LARS Tech Report Number



Among the many factors affecting the LARS multispectral scanner data is the geometric interaction of the sensor look angle and solar illumination angle. One of these interactions is quite well known to many LARS researchers as the "sun-angle" effect to some and solar ramping or just ramping to others. Ramping is the in mean scanner response as a function of scanner look angle for a given data set; or, the change in column mean from column to column for a given run.
