To make the best use of narrowband Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) data, an investigator needs to know the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The signal is land cover dependent and varies with both wavelength and atmospheric absorption, and random noise comprises sensor noise and intrapixel variability (i.e. variability within a pixel). The three existing methods for estimating the SNR are inadequate, since typical laboratory methods inflate, while typical dark-current and image methods deflate the SNR value. The authors propose a procedure called the geostatistical method that is based on the removal of periodic noise by notch filtering in the frequency domain and the isolation of sensor noise and intrapixel variability using the semivariogram. This procedure was applied easily and successfully to five sets of AVIRIS data from the 1987 flying season and could be applied to remotely sensed data from broadband sensors.
