Following are my procedure, observation and question/ request:

Data Source: Earth Explorer Landsat 8 Grass GIS Version: 7.0.2 RC1 Windows 7 32 bit OS

I have been trying to conduct an Atmospheric correction using the Grass wiki reference

https://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Atmospheric_correction

  • Step 01:

    I skipped using the Toar Tool and used Raster map calculator to generate:

    a). Reflectance = REFLECTANCE_MULT_BAND_X(0.00002)*DN + REFLECTANCE_ADD_BAND_X (-0.1)

    b). Reflectance with correction of sun angle = Reflectance/ Sin(Ɵ)

    Here Sin(Ɵ) = Sin(49.52284282) = 0.760664796730206

  • Step 02:

    Plugged in to i.atcorr the Reflectance bands generated at Step 01 for band 4, 3, 2 amd 8 along with their respective control file.

  • Step 03: IHS Pan Sharpened band 4,3,2 with band 8 generated in Step 02

  • Step 04: Generated a RGB composite using Red = band 4, Green = band 3 and Blue = band 2. (All bands derived at Step 03)

I am attaching the resultant image for comparison. Obviously, I missed something. Atmospherically adjusted Image should’ve been clearer. Its not even looking like an RGB image.

Also attaching the Metadata file, Command outputs (so that you may follow my steps, to notice if there was anything unusual) and a control file for reference. I used Tropical Atmospheric model and Urban Aerosol model. The values used in the control file were collected from Atmospheric correction wiki.

Can anyone tell me how I can get a correct atmospherically adjusted image?

enter image description here

Also, I noticed there is no longer any i.landsat.dehaze extension available. Could you please tell me how dehazing may be possible absent the extension?

    A bunch of questions: (a) Why do you think that the image is supposed to be clearer? (b) Have you tried stretching the atmospherically corrected image? (c) What value ranges does your atmospherically corrected image have? Lastly, pansharpening after atmospheric correction is risky, and you will loose some of the spectral fidelity with that operation, meaning you may end up with negative / nonsense values. – Mikkel Lydholm Rasmussen Nov 16 '15 at 12:39
  • a). Because of hazy Bands, difficult to distinguish between land covers. Hence looking for dehazing. But , the extension is no longer available in Grass. Further literature review suggests atmospheric correction a viable alternative. Grass reference suggests it as a pre-processing step. grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/LANDSAT also cpi.com/products/act.html b). Not yet. c).B8 :min = 1.501154e-005 max = 3.678026 B4 :min = 1.149623e-006 max = 2.351371 B3 :min = 7.561963e-006 max = 4.233557 B2 :min = 1.508958e-005 max = 1.797155 d.detail is preferred. Any alternative mthd? Ty. – ıat7b Nov 16 '15 at 15:14

    Atmospheric correction, by itself, will not make your image clearer. Currently, you are not taking any information from the image, so the atmospheric correction module doesn't know which parts are hazy and which parts are clear. As such, the atmospheric correction is the same for every pixel in your image. Furthermore, the min-max values from your image indicates to me that something went wrong in your correction. The minimum is okay, but the maximum is very high. 6S based atmospheric correction should give you values between 0 and 1, with 1 being unrealistically high. – Mikkel Lydholm Rasmussen Nov 16 '15 at 15:52
  • Thanks. I'll review it further and incorporate your observations in my approach. – ıat7b Nov 16 '15 at 16:01

I would suggest taking one step at a time.

First try the i.landsat.toar module and compare the values with your results to your step 1.

Second you need to be careful with the i.pansharpen module as I think it only accepts 8 bit data so the float data produced from atmospheric correction is going to give you issues.

If you want to pan-sharpen atmospherically corrected data try using mapcalc (make sure your region settings have resolution 15m x 15m). The formulas are written in the i.pansharpen docs and available here: http://www.sensorsportal.com/HTML/DIGEST/august_2014/Vol_177/P_RP_0183.pdf

So check your individual bands with a greyscale color-ramp then if they all look good have a go at composite.
