Paper Abstract

The corrections are presented for the visible and near infrared spectrum. The specifications of earth-atmosphere models are given. Herman's and Dave's methods of computing the four Stokes parameters are presented. The relative differences between the two sets of values are one percent. Such precision is insufficient for many remote sensing applications, since satellite measurements of radiance will soon have SNR exceeding 100. The absolute accuracy of the computations can be established only by comparisons with measured data. Suitable observations do not yet exist. Nevertheless, comparisons are made between computed and aircraft and satellite measured radiances.
