Parametrisation of Earth's polarisation spectrum in the ultra-violet

Abstract:

An accurate radiometric calibration of polarisation-sensitive space-borne instruments operating in the UV is important for the correct retrieval of data products that require absolute radiances such as the ozone profile. We attempt to improve this calibration through the development of a parametrisation of ultra-violet earth-shine polarisation. We have constructed a database of UV (290-330 nm) top-of-atmosphere Stokes vectors for various solar and viewing geometries as well as surface albedos...
