Haze degrades optical data and reduces the accuracy of the data interpretation. Haze detection and removal is a hallenging and an important task for optical multispectral data correction. This work presents an empirical and automatic method for inhomogeneous haze detection and removal in medium and high resolution satellite optical multispectral images. The dark object subtraction method is further developed to calculate a haze thickness map allowing a spectrally consistent haze removal on calibrated and uncalibrated satellite multispectral data. Rare scenes with a uniform and highly reflecting landcover result in limitations of the method. Evaluation on hazy multispectral data (Landsat 8 OLI and WorldView-2) and a comparison to haze free reference data illustrates the spectral consistency after haze removal.
