This dataset includes two MODIS L1B images and the generated sun glint reflectance (LGN) data after atmospheric correction. LGN was also modeled for the two images according to the sun/view geometry, oil and water fresnel reflection. This dataset introduced atmospheric correction and different oil fresnel reflection with water in the calculation of sun glint reflectance from MODIS imagery. By doing this, the calculated sun glint reflectance results are more accurate and the original concept of sun glint critical angle is refined.
To further refine the sun glint critical angle concept in oil detection by introducing a different fresnel reflection of oil with water as well as atmospheric correction was performed before calculating sun glint reflectance.
