Abstract: The presented adjacency correction algorithm is based on the use of the point spread function (PSF), which allows to calculatecalculating the contribution of reflections from the nearby pixels to the apparent radiance of the target. The analytical expression for of the PSF for an arbitrary stratified atmosphere is obtained in the approximation of primary scattering, whereas the full equation of radiative transfer is used the for the estimation of the radiance reflected from the surface the full equation of radiative transfer is used . The algorithm is sensor- independent and can be applied for processing of the images of water basins with arbitrary shape of the shore line and under different geometry geometries of the surveyobservation. It was has been already usedapplied on a routine basis for the processing of many thousands images of water scenes acquired from MODIS, MERIS, LANDSAT5-8, Rapideye, WorldView-2 and other satellites.
