Paper Abstract

A balloon borne instrument BALLAD (balloon limb aerosol detection) has been developed at the LOA (Laboratoire d'Optique Atmospherique). It scans the Earth's limb at three wavelengths (450, 600, and 850 nm) from the float altitude between 30 - 35 km when the sun is low above the horizon; polarization is also measured in the 850 nm channel. A flight has been performed from the southwest of France on October 13, 1994 during the phase II of the SESAME (Second European Stratospheric Arctic and Mid-latitude Experiment) campaign. An analysis of the reflectances at 850 and 450 nm without polarization is presented.
