MAS raw and atmospherically corrected near infrared imagery over the Atchafalaya Bay on January 24, 1995.  Atmospheric correction mitigates limb brightening due to molecular and aerosol scattering in the raw image.  The atmospheric scattered radiance is typically small compared to the near infrared in-water turbidity signal in the Atchafalaya Bay region.
