Measurement error is estimated for each average spectrum, following the approach outlined in Bianchini and Palchetti (2008), by calculating the radiometric noise equivalent spectral radiance (NESR) due to detector noise, the calibration error (Cal Err) due to the calibration uncertainty, and the standard deviation of the mean (STD).
