The iCOR atmospheric correction is now available as plugin in the SNAP toolbox for the correction of Sentinel-2 and Landsat-8 images
iCOR, an image atmospheric correction algorithm for land and water (previously known as OPERA (Sterckx et al., 2015)), is made available to the broad user community through the ESA Sentinel Application Platform (SNAP). This version allows the atmospheric correction of Landsat-8 and Sentinel-2 imagery.
iCOR is scene and sensor generic and can process images containing land, coastal, inland and transitional water pixels. Through the use of a single atmospheric correction implementation, discontinuities in the reflectance between land and the highly dynamic water areas are reduced. iCOR is user-friendly and requires minimal manual interaction as the tool tries to retieve all the needed information from the image itself. Neverthess, the user is free to play with some options, like cloud or water detecting settings, or enabling the correction of adjacency effects over land and/or water.
The performance of iCOR has been extensitively tested in different research projects (INFORM , HIGHROC and SPONGE) and in the ACIX Atmopsheric Correction Inter-comparison Exercise organised by ESA-NASA.
The current release is available for Linux and Windows platforms.
