A blog about a system to determine terrestrial albedo by earthshine observations. Feasible thanks to sheer determination.

Use Moon in EO satellite images

Student projectsPosted by Peter Thejll Sep 14, 2013 04:43PM
The Moon is occasionally present in corners of images of the Earth taken by Earth Observation satellites. Use such images and the known colours of the Moon to link the filter system used by the satellites to the Johnson UBV system. Use the resulting tool to calculate B-V colours of the Earth through time. Map out seasonal variability. Test sensitivity of the result to imposed variations in e.g. ice cover (by image manipulation) or similar for desertification.
