Paper Abstract

In this work, the super-thin cloud detection algorithm [1], that uses the polarization angle of the backscattered solar radiation to find the super-thin clouds, is briefly reviewed and the retrieval of the optical thickness of these clouds is proposed. We found that at the neighborhood angles of the backscattering direction, these clouds can be reliably detected. The polarized components of the reflected light may be used to retrieve the optical thickness of these clouds.
