Remote sensing of above cloud aerosols

Part of the Springer Praxis Books book series (PRAXIS)

Abstract

The direct and indirect radiative effects of aerosols suspended in the atmosphere above clouds (ACA) are a highly uncertain component of both regional and global climate. Much of this uncertainty is observational in nature most orbital remote sensing algorithms were not designed to simultaneously retrieve aerosol and cloud optical properties in the same vertical column.
