ABE 4034; Homework Problems – 5; Due on Thursday 2/12/09 Problem 1: Thermal infrared measurements of the sea at 10 ! m indicate a brightness temperature of 294.6 K at incidence angle of 0º and 293.3 K at an angle of 52º from zenith. Estimate the brightness temperature of sea surface and the optical thickness of the atmosphere at nadir ( " =0º), assuming that the atmosphere is an isothermal blackbody at a physical temperature of 280 K. Problem 2: Primarily two wavebands are used for thermal infrared remote sensing, 3-5
