内容 研究概要:Radiative properties of aerosols and clouds on a global scale are strongly needed for better understanding of Earth's radiation budget. POLDER and OCTS sensors were mounted on the earth observing satellite ADEOS. POLDER is known as a unique sensor as polarization measurements and multi-(up to 14) directional viewing of one target. We intend to show that retrieval of aerosols/clouds are greatly improved with these multi-directional polarization information. OCTS sensor has 8 spectral bands from visible to near-infrared wavelength region similar to POLDER and four thermal bands in the wavelengths from 3 to 12μm. Here the 10.9μm-band is used to estimate the cloud top temperature because of the less influence of the gaseous absorption. In other word, this work proposes the combined use of POLDER- and OCTS-data for detection of the aerosol/cloud characteristics over the ocean and over the land.
