A modified pBRDF model with a diffuse scattering component is applied to estimate the complex refractive index, slope variance roughness, and diffuse scattering coefficients of object surfaces from time sequences of polarimetric images. The approach is used for the first time to produce parameter-based images from multispectral Stokes imagery of outdoor target scenes collected by the Ground Multiangle Spectro-Polarimetric Imager. The images of the estimated surface parameters show distinctions between different objects in the scenes and the parameter values are consistent with reasonable expectations for the object surfaces.
