Satellite Multiangle Spectropolarimetric Imaging of Aerosols
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California
Tuesday, August 01 2006
One instrument would implement a synergistic combination of multispectral, multiangle, and polarimetric techniques.
A proposed remote-sensing instrument, to be carried aboard a spacecraft in orbit around the Earth, would gather data on the spatial distribution and radiative characteristics of tropospheric aerosols. These data are needed for better understanding of the natural and anthropogenic origins of aerosols, and of the effects of aerosols on climate and atmospheric chemistry.
