Instantaneous observation of surface transmission

5th GOES Users Conference: P1.12 Validation of a GOES-R Broadband Shortwave Surface Transmission and TOA Albedo Look-Up-Table method.Fred G. Rose, Istvan Laszlo, Thomas P. Charlock, Qiang Fu

  • Method: Fu-Liou GOesR Look-Up-Table(FLUGOR LUT)

  • The Langley Fu-Liou SW code an 18 band 4-stream correlated-k delta-eddington code was run using 35 vertical levels to generate two Look-Up-Talbles (LUT) one for clear-sky another for cloudy-Sky together they form an 11 variable LUT giving outputs of TOA broadband albedo and broadband surface transmission.

  • FLUGOR LUT Inputs:

  • f { solar zenith angle, PW, O3,

  • Surface [ albedo, elevation],

  • Cloud [ fraction, optical depth, Re or De, height],

  • Aerosol [tau, ssa] }

  • FLUGOR LUT Output:

  • BROADBAND SURFACE TRANSMISSION

  • BROADBAND TOA ALBEDO

  • Validation Comparisons:

  • Five years of instantaneous daily daytime CERES overpass data at 45 sites

  • Full Fu-Liou radiative transfer code results from CERES CRS Ed2b product using CERES observed fluxes, MODIS based cloud and aerosols. Comparisons at TOA and Surface

  • Surface data at 45 sites from ARM, BSRN, CMDL, SURFRAD processed in to 15 minute averages taken from CERES/CAVE (Ceres Arm Validation Experiment) website.

FLUGOR LUT Vs. Surface Based Observations of Surface BB Transmission

Instantaneous Observation of

Surface Transmission

FLUGOR LUT surface transmission

scatter, means and standard deviation are very similar to FULL CRS Ed2b radiative transfer results.

Standard deviations of instantaneous

comparison of FULL RT to Surface Observations dwarf the FLUGOR LUT minus FULL CRS Ed2b Radiative transfer instantaneous differences.
