Paper Abstract

Model calculations of upwelling spectral radiances at aircraft and satellite altitudes have been made to assess the capability of different current and planned sensors to extract information on the atmospheric aerosols. The visible and near infrared channels on the AVHRR, CZCS, and SeaWiFS satellite sensors were used, as well as hypothetical multichannel instruments covering 400 - 1000 nm with bandwidths of 100, 20, or 10 nm. The sensitivity to the aerosol and environmental properties increased as the bandwidth of the channel decreased.
