We propose some theoretical and methodological principles for intercalibration of satellite data and in-field spectrometric measurements in the framework of water balance and hydrological and hydro-geological security assessment. On the basis of the analysis of ground test sites spectrometric data of FieldSpec ® 3 FR, the statistical regularities of spatial-temporal distribution of spectral reflectance characteristics are determined for the spectral indices used in this study. An algorithm is proposed to calculate spectral indices using the correlation analysis. The general form of calibration patterns for further verification of satellite observations is given
