Paper Abstract

Preliminary to the launch of the first Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) satellite and within support of the Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget experiment onboard of MSG, algorithms are tested to retrieve aerosol optical parameters and their possible signature on the Earth Radiation Budget (ERB). For this existing data from instruments on satellites in low earth orbit is used like NOAA/AVHRR and ScaRaB. In particular AVHRR data are used for retrieving aerosol optical parameters which then will be related to ERB measurements from ScaRaB.
