Paper Abstract

The ability to derive aerosol properties from satellites is important for climate change studies and atmospheric corrections in studying surface properties. Although aerosols have been measured over land from satellite, it is more feasible to measure them over low surface albedos such as the ocean. One of the uncertainties that must be dealt with is the aerosol phase function, which depends on the aerosol size distribution and the observing wavelength.
