Wondering what the outputband_opt option means. I used it to process Landsat-8 images and discovered that for some sites, using the zero option adds to more negative Rrs retrieval (for example at 443 nm).
Thanks for your anticipated response.
outband_optapplies the out-of-band correction for water-leaving radiances. It is a correction that is used to adjust the sensor to a nominal 11nm square bandpass centered on the nominal wavelengths of the sensor. It was originally conceived as a means to correct for the significant out-of-band contribution to the SeaWiFS nominal bands due to lower than desired filter quality.
