Polarization of reffected solar radiation over land, sea and cloud surfaces
- 43 Downloads
Results of the measurements of the polarization of reffected solar radiation in the visible region over various land, sea and cloud surfaces carried out from a high altitude aircraft are presented. It is shown that the measurable polarization can be used as a sensitive parameter to determine atmospheric turbidity and the aerosol content.
