Paper Abstract

It is shown that it is possible to retrieve aerosol properties using polarization measurements from satellite, or aircraft even when the surface polarization is significant and unknown. This extends the domain for which it is possible to intercompare ground and aircraft/satellite estimates of aerosol properties and allows the retrieval of aerosol properties to be made above bare soil surfaces.
