Retrieval of ice cloud properties using an optimal estimation algorithm and MODIS infrared observations: 1. Forward model, error analysis, and information content
An optimal estimation (OE) retrieval method is developed to infer three ice cloud properties simultaneously: optical thickness (τ), effective radius (r ₑ𝒻𝒻 ), and cloud top height (h). This method is based on a fast ...
Retrieval of ice cloud properties using an optimal estimation algorithm and MODIS infrared observations: 2. Retrieval evaluation
An infrared-based optimal estimation ( OE-IR) algorithm for retrieving ice cloud properties is evaluated. Speciﬁcally, the implementation of the algorithm with MODerate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) observations ...
The impact of cloud vertical profile on liquid water path retrieval based on the bispectral method: A theoretical study based on large‐eddy simulations of shallow marine boundary layer clouds
Passive optical retrievals of cloud liquid water path (LWP), like those implemented for Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), rely on cloud vertical profile assumptions to relate optical thickness (τ) and ...
