Paper Abstract

Several methods exist for determining the presence of aerosol, and its optical thickness, from satellite visible and infrared observations. This paper suggests a new approach, physically based on the spectral variation of the index of refraction in the 8 - 12 micrometers region. The tri- spectral technique makes use of observations at wavelengths of 8, 11, and 12 micrometers . Observations from the AVHRR and HIRS/2 instruments demonstrate the potential of the technique.
