Abstract

To evaluate the roughness of the Earth’s surface, experiments were performed to determine the effects of ground slope using a remote sensing simulator. First, four kinds of cone made of cardboard are used as models and the reflection intensity to the direction of azimuth angle is measured by use of a remote sensing simulator. Second, Japan Earth Resources Satellite-1 data from the slope of Mt. Fuji in Japan are analyzed. Real slope angles are estimated based on the results of both the model experiments and the satellite data analysis.
