Abstract

Reflected solar radiation from Earth’s ocean–atmosphere system can be significantly polarized by Earth’s surface and by atmospheric components such as air molecules and aerosols. Measurements of many satellite radiometric instruments have some dependence on the polarization state of the reflected light.
