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 ...
A framework for quantifying the impacts of sub-pixel reflectance variance and covariance on cloud optical thickness and effective radius retrievals based on the bispectral method
(American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2017-02-22)
The so-called bi-spectral method retrieves cloud optical thickness (τ) and cloud droplet effective radius (rₑ) simultaneously from a pair of cloud reflectance observations, one in a visible or near infrared (VIS/NIR) band ...
