S. and International Cooperator ground station network for the direct downlink and distribution of Landsat 7 (L7) and/or Landsat 5 (L5) image data. 5, the mobile station is an attractive solution to fill the holes and also an efficient means to perform acquisition in a remote location for a long period of time when a lot of images are needed for particular work (cartography of a region for example). The ground receiving stations acquire, preprocess, archive, and process data. Their typical components and functions may include the data acquisition facility, the data processing facility, the value added facility, and user support services.

In the past, these effects were ignored or artificially removed using cosmetic algorithms during radiometric preprocessing. For example, dropped lines are usually filled with the values of the previous lines or the averages of the neighboring lines. Strips can be removed by using simple along-line convolution, highpass filtering, and forward and reverse principal component transformations. 4. 8 MODIS IFOV dependant on the view zenith angle processing systems. These enhancement methods can broadly be divided into spatial domain and frequency domain categories.

7. PRODUCTION, ARCHIVING, AND DISTRIBUTION OF HIGH-LEVEL PRODUCTS values so that a table searching procedure becomes a simple calculation of the local functions, or a simple linear regression is executed instead of table searching for each angular bin in the solar illumination and sensor viewing geometry. 3 presents its application to estimation of incident solar radiation. 4. Data Assimilation Methods The values of land surface variables, estimated using the methods from the previous sections from different sources, may not be physically consistent.
