Calibration results of the ocean color and temperature scanner (OCTS) on board the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite (ADEOS) are presented. We have evaluated the OCTS responses to internal calibration sources (i.e., lamps, electric voltages, and sunlight), natural targets (i.e., night data and uniform targets in the daytime), external calibration source (i.e., underflight of a calibrated airborne sensor), and a theoretical calibration source modeled for the atmospheric radiation. We then compared the acceptability of these calibration sources.
