1 Interactions Between Electromagnetic Wave and Targets Electromagnetic radiation wavelength λ, frequency ν and the velocity υ have the following relation. λ = υ/ν by: Dr. Kiyoshi Honda Space Technology Applications and Research Program School of Advanced Technologies Asian Institute of Technology Note: Electro-magnetic radiation has the characteristics of both wave motion and particle motion. The three properties of electromagnetic energy The four elements of electromagnetic radiation Wavelength (λ) is the distance from one wave crest to the next. Amplitude is equivalent to the height of each peak, often measured as energy levels. Frequency (ν) is measured as the number of crests passing a fixed point in a given period. Electromagnetic Spectrum Electromagnetic Spectrum II 1

3 Black Body Radiation Black body radiation is defined as thermal radiation of a black body, and can be given by Plank's law as a function of temperature T and wavelength. Black Body Radiation Black body radiation given by Plank s law as a function of temperature T and wavelength. Black Body Radiation In remote sensing, a correction for emissivity should be made because normal observed objects are not black bodies. Emissivity can be defined by the following formula: Emissivity = Radiant energy of an object Radiant energy of a black body with the same temperature as the object MODIS Products on Temperature and Emissivity Interactions with Surfaces There are three (3) forms of interaction that can take place when energy strikes, or is incident (I) upon the surface. These are: reflection (R); transmission (T); and absorption (A). 3

4 Interactions with Surfaces Reflectance Scattered attenuated Optical Sensor Reflectance is defined as the ratio of incident flux on a sample surface to reflected flux from the surface reflected absorbed transmitted The nature of reflection depends on sizes of surface irregularities (roughness or smoothness) in relation to the wavelength of the radiation considered. Specular reflection occurs when a smooth surface tends to direct incident radiation in a single direction. Diffuse reflection occurs when a rough surface tends to scatter energy more or less equally in all directions. Lambertian Surface Lambertian Surface is a Uniformly Diffused Surface, reflects a constant radiance regardless of look angle Perfectly Diffused Surface is Uniformly diffuse surface with a reflectance of 1. I ( θ ) I cos θ I (θ ) = n Luminous intensity when incident lights with an angle of theta from the normal to the surface I n Luminous intensity when incident lights is the normal to the surface Directional Reflectance Reflectance with specified incident and reflected direction of electromagnetic direction is called directional reflectance. If incident and reflection are both directional, such reflectance is called bidirectional reflectance. 4

6 Spectral Reflectance Reflectance with respect to wavelength is called spectral reflectance as shown for a vegetation example Percent Reflectance Spectral Reflectance Vegetation Soil Clear River Water Turbid River Water Wavelength (µm) Shown above are the reflected spectral signatures of two important alteration minerals, kaolinite in blue and alunite in red. Wavelength is along the x-axis and is given in microns from um. Reflectance is reported in percent from on the y-axis. Minerals lend themselves easily to identification due to their highly unique crystal geometries. Such signatures can be measured in the field with a portable field spectroradiometer such as the one sitting atop kaolinite boulders in the photograph. They can also be measured in the imagery itself. However, spectral signatures may be similar due to their similar chemical constituents. The chlorophyll-induced greeness of vegetation is an excellent example of this problem. Green vegetation species can look very similar to each other as illustrated by the Pinyon pine and Juniper reflectance signatures shown below. Wavelength is again reported in microns from um and reflectance is given as a percentage along the y-axis. Spectral characteristics Why does an object have a peculiar characteristic of reflection, transmission, or absorption? Interactions between Matter and Electro-magnetic Radiation Why a leaf looks green?? the chlorophyll absorbs blue and red spectra and reflects the green spectrum 6

7 Simplification by hydrogen atom and absorption of electro-magnetic radiation Therefore, matter will emit or absorb electro-magnetic radiation at a particular wavelength with respect to the inner state. The types of inner state are classified into several classes, such as ionization, excitation, molecular vibration, molecular rotation etc. Electro-magnetic energy E = hc / λ where h : Plank's constant c : velocity of light λ : wavelength Transmission Transmission Transmission of radiation occurs when radiation passes through a substance without significant attenuation. RGB RGB From a given thickness, or depth, of a substance, the ability of a medium to transmit energy is measured as the transmittance (t) RGB RG t = Transmitted radiation Incident radiation Incident radiation passes through an object without significant attenuation (left), or may be selectively transmitted (right). The object on the right would act as a yellow ( minus blue ) filter, as it would transmit all visible radiation except for blue light. Scattering Scattering is the redirection of electromagnetic energy by the target. sensor Interactions with Surfaces (Summary) 7

8 Space shuttle view of the atmosphere Particles and gases in the atmosphere can affect the incoming light and radiation. These effects are caused by the mechanisms of scattering and absorption. Scattering occurs when particles or large gas molecules present in the atmosphere interact with and cause the electromagnetic radiation to be redirected from its original path. How much scattering takes place depends on several factors including the wavelength of the radiation, the abundance of particles or gases, and the distance the radiation travels through the atmosphere. Rayleigh scattering occurs when particles are very small compared to the wavelength of the radiation. These could be particles such as small specks of dust or nitrogen and oxygen molecules. Rayleigh scattering is the dominant scattering mechanism in the upper atmosphere. The fact that the sky appears "blue" during the day is because of this phenomenon. Mie scattering occurs when the particles are just about the same size as the wavelength of the radiation. Dust, pollen, smoke and water vapour are common causes of Mie scattering which tends to affect longer wavelengths than those affected by Rayleigh scattering. Mie scattering occurs mostly in the lower portions of the atmosphere where larger particles are more abundant, and dominates when cloud conditions are overcast. Absorption is the other main mechanism at work when electromagnetic radiation interacts with the atmosphere. In contrast to scattering, this phenomenon causes molecules in the atmosphere to absorb energy at various wavelengths Atmospheric windows are areas of the spectrum which are not severely influenced by atmospheric absorption and thus, are useful to remote sensors. Ozone, carbon dioxide, and water vapour are the three main atmospheric constituents which absorb radiation. By comparing the characteristics of the two most common energy/radiation sources (the sun and the earth) with the atmospheric windows available to us, we can define those wavelengths that we can use most effectively for remote sensing. 8
