On the relationship between Stokes parameters Q and U of atmospheric ultraviolet/visible/near-infrared radiation

Abstract:

On the basis of both spaceborne measurements (Polarization and Directionality of the Earth's Reflectances (POLDER)) and radiative transfer modeling, it is shown that the polarization of reflected solar light (300-900 nm) at the top of the atmosphere is most often perpendicular and less often parallel to the plane of single scattering. In terms of the elements of the Stokes vector, U is typically much smaller than Q when using the single-scattering plane as reference. When using any other plan...
