Known and unknown unknowns: Uncertainty estimation in satellite remote sensing

Abstract:

This paper discusses a best-practice representation of uncertainty in satellite remote sensing data. An estimate of uncertainty is necessary to make appropriate use of the information conveyed by a measurement. Traditional error propagation quantifies the uncertainty in a measurement due to well-understood perturbations in a measurement and in auxiliary data - known, quantified "unknowns". The under-constrained nature of most satellite remote sensing observations requires the use of various a...
