Paper Abstract

A comparison is made between two ground-based atmospheric water-vapor measurement techniques, each of which uses data from a solar-pointing radiometer. One technique uses visible wavelength channels to retrieve aerosol loading, surface pressure readings for Rayleigh scattering analyses, and the 0.94 micron channel to extract water vapor from the residual of total versus scattering opacity. The other technique requires only the ratio of channels centered at 0.94 and 0.87 micron. Results are given for the April 13, 1989 AVIRIS in-flight calibration.
