Paper Abstract

We study the Earth surface polarized reflectance using data collected by a space-based lidar. Accurate modelling of the surface reflectance supports retrieval algorithm development for the current and future Earth Science missions. Strong polarization of the laser light from Cloud-Aerosol Transport System (CATS) instrument, operated in 2015-2017, and nighttime measurements yield higher signal-to-noise ratio for polarization compared to the previous analysis of reflected, initially unpolarized, solar light.
