Slide2 l.jpg

Retrieval of surface needs combination of AERONET- MODIS-MISR-POLDER dataatmospheric correction for aerosol effect

Retrieval of aerosol reliesonassumption of surface reflectance

Idea:Less assumptions are needed in simultaneous retrieval of aerosol and surface from combination of up- and down - looking observations

Retrieval scheme l.jpg
Retrieval scheme: combination of AERONET- MODIS-MISR-POLDER data

MISR, POLDER

MODIS

  • Forward model:

  • - Detailed aerosol (same as in AERONET)

  • Multiple scattering accounts for BRDF

  • BRDF modeled using parameterized model

  • (Rahman-Pinty-Verstraete, 1993)

Numerical inversion:

-Accounting for noise

-Solving Ill-posed problem

- Setting a priori constraints

Observations

aerosol particle sizes,

complex refractive index,

parameters of BRDF

(or Lambertian albedo)


Inversion l.jpg
Inversion combination of AERONET- MODIS-MISR-POLDER data

  • Statistically Optimized Minimization-

  • Multi-term LSM Fitting (Dubovik and King 2000; Dubovik 2004)

weighting

Lagrange parameters

  • Measurements:

  • i=1 - optical thickness

  • i=2 - AERONET radiances

  • i=3 - stellite radiances

  • their covariances

  • (should depend on l and Q)

  • -lognormal error distributions

a priori restrictions on

norms of derivatives of:

i=4 -size distr. variability;

i=5 -n spectral variability;

i=6 -k spectral variability;

i=7 - surface reflectance

spectral variability;

  • Results: combination of AERONET- MODIS-MISR-POLDER data

    • Simultaneous inversion of satellite and

      AERONET data has been developed

    • Surface BRDF and Albedo can be retrieved simultaneously with aerosol (low and moderate t,)

    • Improved retrievals of aerosol:

      - refractive index and size (low tover vegetation)

      - wo(l) and size (over bright surface)

    • The approach is very useful for sites with complex surface structure (Islands, costal)

      Plans:

    • Completing analysis

    • Making operational retrievals

    • Including Lidar information
