For instruments like the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) the ground “truth” sites essentially provide what is called vicarious calibration. For satellite sensor like the SeaWIFS the instrument calibration that began in the laboratory is continuing through vicarious calibration by comparison of data retrievals to in-water.

The results of this comparison allow transfer of the AVHRR absolute calibration, which has been established over the whole series, to the radiometers on the geostationary satellites. Results are given for Meteosat-2, Meteosat-3, and Meteosat-4, for GOES-5, GOES-6, and GOES-7, for GMS-2, GMS-3, and GMS-4 and for Insat-1B.The AVHRR or Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer is the main sensor on-board of the NOAA satellite platforms, which spin around the earth in a near-polar orbit at a height of about km and a frequency of about cycles per day.Chinese Fengyun-2 (FY-2) satellite is to ensure continuity of atmospheric observation from the geostationary orbit (GEO) at the longitude of E and E degrees as a part of the worldwide operational meteorological satellite system.
