Paper Abstract

In the frame of DOAS, a Monte Carlo code has been developed, to calculate, for a given detector with assigned diameter and field of view, the single and multiple scattering radiance. Very general 3-D geometry is foreseen. Spatial distribution along the detector axis for the single and total scattering radiance are computed. Ground reflected contributions to the solar radiance are estimated. Differential effects due to small perturbations in physical parameters, such as ozone density, can simultaneously be taken into account in the same calculation. The code has been applied to ToTaL-DOAS (Topographic Target Light scattering-Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy) measurements.
