Paper Abstract

Aerosol remote sensing over land requires knowing the surface reflectance in some spectral bands. Dense dark vegetation can be used in the blue and in the red based on ground based measurements of their reflectances or even space measurements from a statistical analysis for clear days. An aerosol remote sensing algorithm based on DDV is available on MERIS data (Santer et al., 1999). An other alternative is to derive the surface reflectances from space as far as you have ground based characterization of the aerosols to perform suitable atmospheric correction, at least on a representative time series (Borde and Verdebout, 2001). The two algorithms, applied on SeaWiFS images, are compared over three sites (Toulouse, Ispra, Adriatic) for which ground based measurements are available.
