摘要: WFV (Wide Field of View) cameras on-board Gaofen-1 satellite (gaofenmeans high resolution) provide unparalleled global observations with both high spatial and high temporal resolutions. However, the accuracy of the radiometric calibration remains unknown. Using an improved cross calibration method, the WFV cameras were re-calibrated with well-calibrated Landsat-8 OLI (Operational Land Imager) data as reference. An objective method was proposed to guarantee the homogeneity and sufficient dynamic coverage for calibration sites and reference sensors. The USGS spectral library was used to match the most appropriate hyperspectral data, based on which the spectral band differences between WFV and OLI were adjusted. The TOA (top-of-atmosphere) reflectance of the cross-calibrated WFV agreed very well with that of OLI, with the mean differences between the two sensors less than 5% for most of the reflectance ranges of the four spectral bands, after accounting for the spectral band difference between the two sensors. Given the calibration error of 3% for Landsat-8 OLI TOA reflectance, the uncertainty of the newly-calibrated WFV should be within 8%. The newly generated calibration coefficients established confidence when using Gaofen-1 WFV observations for their further quantitative applications, and the proposed simple cross calibration method here could be easily extended to other operational or planned satellite missions.
