Cloud heterogeneity effects on cloud and aerosol above cloud properties retrieved from simulated total and polarized reflectances

Abstract:

Simulations of total and polarized cloud reflectance angular signatures such as the ones measured by the multi-angular and polarized radiometer POLDER3/PARASOL are used to evaluate cloud heterogeneity effects on cloud parameter retrievals. Effects on optical thickness, cloud albedo, effective radius and variance of the cloud droplet size distribution and aerosol above cloud optical thickness are analyzed. Three different clouds having the same mean optical thicknesses were generated: the firs...
