Paper Abstract

Using data from the Lidar In-Space Technology Experiment (LITE), the authors examine the ability to detect urban and regional scale pollution signatures from space. LITE showed that over 50 urban areas could be detected worldwide and that one case off Taiwan could be quantitatively studied to estimate the mass flux of sulphate aerosol from the island. These results are now being used in a regional aerosol climate model, NARCM, to predict the aerosol budget in the northern hemisphere. Comparisons of LITE aerosol retrievals and the NARCM predictions are given.
