Ozone and aerosol optical properties from ground based ultra-violet irradiance measurements
MetadataShow full item record
Error analysis and characterization of an optimal estimation retrieval algorithm are described. The algorithm, which was initially developed by Goering et al., estimates values of aerosol optical properties (aerosol optical depths, AOD, and aerosol single scattering albedo, SSA) at 7 wavelengths in the ultraviolet (UV) spectral region as well as total column ozone (TOC) Goering et al. (2005). The measurements used in the retrieval algorithm are obtained from a UV Multi-Filter Rotating Shadow-Band Radiometer (UVMFRSR), which measures diffuse and direct irradiances at 300-, 305-, 311-, 317-, 325-, ...
