Paper Abstract

The Geostationary Ocean Color Imager (GOCI) on board the Communication Ocean Meteorological Satellite (COMS) requires accurate atmospheric correction for the purpose of qualified ocean remote sensing. Since its eight bands are affected by atmospheric constituents such as gases, molecules and atmospheric aerosols, understanding of aerosolradiation interactions is needed. Aerosol optical properties based on sun-photometer measurements are used to analysis aerosol optical thickness (AOT) under various aerosol type and loadings. It is found that the choice of aerosol type makes little different in AOT retrieval for AOT<0.2. These results will be useful for aerosol retrieval of COMS/GOCI data processing.
