Evaluation of the RS-14 line scanner imagery from a user's point of view / by K.P.B. Thomson and W.D. McColl.: En39-72/1973E-PDF

"If infrared imagery is to be of value to user agencies, then its quantitative potential must be exploited to the utmost extent. This report describes a quantitative evaluation of high altitude RS-14 infrared imagery collected over Lake Ontario during the 1972 Canada Centre for Inland Waters (CCIW) field season. The infrared surveys were carried out by the Airborne Sensing Unit of the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing as part of the CCIW International Field Year for the Great Lakes (IFYGL) Remote Sensing program. The report will only deal with the aspects of the imagery pertaining to its quality and ability to produce quantitative temperature estimates of the water surface"--Introduction, page [1].
