Paper Abstract

This work proposes an approach to retrieve aerosol properties based on combination of multi-sensor data. Here both data provided by POLDER (Polarization and Directionality of Earth Reflectances) and GLI (Global Imager) mounted on Japanese satellite ADEOS-2(Advance Earth Observing Satellite-2), which was operating during April to October in 2003, are examined. POLDER sensor has such a unique facility as directional polarization measurements with three channels, and GLI provides high-resolution images over the wide range of wavelength from near ultra violet to the thermal infrared. This fact looks promising that combining both sensor data presents effective information of aerosols. A proposed algorithm for aerosol retrieval over the land, in addition to forgoing POLDER oriented procedure, involves following processes as: 1) classification of non-absorbing and absorbing aerosols based on GLI data in the near ultra violet and the violet channels. 2) a forgoing POLDER oriented procedure. 3) atmospheric correction for NDVI.
