Development of a remote sensing algorithm to retrieve atmospheric aerosol properties using multi-wavelength and multi-pixel information
Retrieval of aerosol properties over complex surface conditions is a challenging task. The conventional approach usually requires making numerous assumptions about surface and aerosol properties. This study proposes a new approach to retrieve fine and coarse mode aerosol optical depth, soot particle fraction, and ground surface albedo by using multi-pixel and multi-channel satellite data. The paper has several case studies, both numerical and experimental, that confirm the importance of using multi-pixel information for retrieval, and the application of multi-pixel method to soot aerosol retrieval in the urban regions is interesting.
