Out-of-Band Spectral Response


OLI VNIR bands out-of-band response


SWIR bands out-of-band response

Figure 1. (a) OLI VNIR bands and (b) SWIR bands out-of-band response.

The band-average out-of-band spectral responses of the Operational Land Imager (OLI) are provided in this spreadsheet  and are shown in Figure 1.

The spreadsheet does not contain in-band responses because the in-band spectral response was measured in finer detail in tests specifically designed to measure the in-band spectral ranges. The in-band responses can be found here.

For more detail, see Barsi, 2014.
