Abstract

A model for contrast reduction by atmospheric haze is developed for the 'two-halves' field of the earth's surface (two halves of field of a different surface albedo such as in the case of a seashore) and other geometries of the earth's surface albedo. The resultant simplified solution is used to develop expressions for the line-spread function of the atmosphere and the modulation transfer function. An example is given in applying this point-spread function for the calculation of intensity above the center of a square of different reflectivity than its surrounding.- from Authors
