Paper Abstract

SPoRTMap is a system simulation tool for satellite-based polarimetric aerosol measurements. It integrates a large number of the tasks needed to simulate polarimetric Earth observations from satellite sensors: phenomenology model setup and run, sensor geometry setup, integration of sensor radiometric models, interpolation from model grid to sensor field of view, Stokes parameter SNR computations, etc. The architecture of the simulation system is modular to enable replacement of radiative transfer and sensor noise models. Operation of SPoRTMap is illustrated through creation of an orbital simulation using a specific aerosol model. Integration of diverse aerosol models into orbital mosaics is shown.
