The radiance received by the sensor is influenced by the atmospheric interaction including the effects of absorption and scattering. Based on the analysis of the radiance along the transmission path, we propose an image degradation model and a recovery method for remote sensing and bad weather condition in which the effect of multiple scattering cannot be ignored. Several real outdoor images are restored to verify the effectiveness of the proposed model and method. The results turn out to be significantly improved in contrast and sharpness.
