Paper Abstract

Based on discrete-ordinate-method radiative transfer in multiple scattered theory, the solar direct and scattering radiation with observation band (0.29~3.0 µm) on 5 layers have been computed using the retrievals of Tiros Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS) in clear/cloud sky over southeast China. The errors between the computed values of solar direct and scattered radiation derived from TOVS and that from radiosond data are then given. The purpose of this research is to show if the satellite measurements (TOVS DATA) can be directly used to estimate spatial distribution of solar radiation with observation band.
