Destriping Satellite Images

Unknown author (1978-03-01)

Before satellite images obtained with multiple image sensors can be used in image analysis, corrections must be introduced for the differences in transfer functions on these sensors. Methods are here presented for obtaining the required information directly from the statistics of the sensor outputs. The assumption is made that the probability distribution of the scene radiance seen by each image sensor is the same. Successful destriping of LANDSAT images is demonstrated.
