Future Work
  • Perform complete retrieval to produce benchmark results for XCO2 errors if polarization is neglected
  • Incorporate typical BRDFs
  • Doubling-adding techniques to speed up computation for low optical depth cases
  • Estimation of Stokes parameter Q using first few orders of scattering?
