Typically, the temperature of the receiver cone is also controlled by an external servo loop that supplies electrical power to the heater of resistance R. When the shutter is closed, the servo loop increases the electrical current through the FIGURE 4 Schematic diagram of an electrical substitution radiometer. 1 in Ref. . 40 Optical Radiometry for Ocean Climate Measurements heater by an amount ih in order to maintain the temperature of the cone at T. Except for a number of small effects discussed below, the radiant flux F is equal to the electrical power i2h R, so the radiant flux can be measured by measuring ih and R.
Radiometers for specific applications in remote sensing will be discussed as needed in other chapters of this volume. Here we describe detector-based radiometry and how these values are disseminated. 1 Electrical Substitution Radiometers The starting point of detector-based spectral responsivity scales used for calibration of transfer radiometers, such as filter radiometers and spectrographs used in ocean radiometry, is an instrument known as an electrical substitution radiometer (ESR). ESRs are used primarily at the national standards laboratories such as NIST and the National Physical Laboratory, United Kingdom (NPL, UK) to provide radiant flux responsivity scales traceable to the watt through electrical standards .
It is a fundamental quantity of interest. When normalized by the incident (downwelling) spectral irradiance at the surface, Es(l), the result is termed the remote sensing reflectance, Rrs(qv,fv;l), Rrs ðqv ; fv ; lÞ ¼ Lw ðqv ; fv ; lÞ ; Es ðlÞ (38) with units of inverse steradians . Here we use the subscript “v” to denote a viewing angle to emphasize that Fresnel reflection from the water surface is 28 Optical Radiometry for Ocean Climate Measurements not included in the definition of Rrs(qv,fv;l).
