The reflectance-based method is used to determine an absolute radiometric calibration of Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper for the solar reflective portion of the spectrum. Results are given for data collected at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico on 1992-08-15. These results are compared to those obtained from applying a similar processing approach to data collected in 1984, 1985, 1987, and 1988.
