Sentinel-2 Radiometric Uncertainty Tool

Sentinel 2 Radiometric Uncertainty Tool (S2-RUT)

NPL, in collaboration with Brockmann Consult, has delivered the first version of the Radiometric Uncertainty Tool (RUT) for the Sentinel-2 mission. This innovative tool provides uncertainty images associated to the Top-of-Atmosphere reflectance images delivered by the European Space Agency (ESA). The first version of the tool already incorporates the possibility to define a specific coverage factor and select/deselect the contributors through the user interface. The uncertainty estimates are based in an exhaustive radiometric analysis of both the instrument and radiometric processing chain of the Sentinel-2 mission. The combination model is based on the GUM guidelines.
