Paper Abstract

This paper presents the measurements of maritime aerosols over Seto Inland Sea (Japan), East China Sea and Western Australia. The photopolarimetric data of skylight have been collected by a portable multi-spectral polarimeter named PSR-1000, which has six observing wavelength bands corresponding to the ADEOS/POLDER sensor. The PSR-1000 measures the direct sunlight, which provides Angstrom exponent as well as optical thickness of aerosols. It also measures polarization of atmospheric light, which is available to retrieve the aerosol characteristics. Observations with PSR-1000 have been undertaken since 1996. The obtained results show the spatial change of aerosol properties and exhibit each intrinsic feature for each region.
