- Ratio between the amoung of electromagnetic
energy reflected by a surface and the amoung of energy incident upon
scattering - Multiple interactions
between light rays and gas particles in the atmosphere.
- A subdivision of an electromagnetic
field in wich the visible region is divided into blue, red, and green
- the number of wave oscillations
per unit time or the number of wavelengths that pass a point per unit
- refers to satellites traveling
at the angular velocity at which the earth rotates so that they remain
above the same point on the earth at all times
resolution - The ability to distinguish
between closely spaced objects. Commonly expressed as the most closely
spaced line-pairs per unit distance that can be distinguished.
resolution - Range of wavelengths
recorded by a detector. Also referred to as bandwidth.
- a satellite polar orbit pattern
that covers the earth during a cycle that lasts from days to weeks.
On subsequent cycles the orbit paths are repeated at the same local
- the distance between successive
wave crests or other equivalent points in a harmonic wave.
