We consider a two-stage procedure of correction and reconstruction of images of the Earth's underlying surface recorded with the AVHRR instrument from NOAA satellites in some situations observed in spring and fall seasons. The method of histogram transforms is used at the first stage to eliminate the effect of a semitransparent cloud cover (the stage of data correction). In order to eliminate screening by clouds, the approach based on the data reconstruction using non-parametric regression relations is used at the second stage (the stage of reconstruction). Examples of the correction and reconstruction of the actual images recorded with the AVHRR device are presented.
