Retrieval of nonlinear spectral information from ocean sunglint
In this thesis we develop an inversion procedure which allows the retrieval of nonlinear characteristics of the ocean wave surface from observations of specularly reflected visible solar radiation,Expand
Retrieval of Wind Wave Elevation Spectra From Sunglint Data
A new expression for the mean value of ocean surface sunglint, modeled as a binary-valued random process, is calculated and applied to an image recorded coincident with the NASA AIRSAR PACRIM2 field campaign, to retrieve the 1-D elevation power spectrum. Expand
Reprocessing of HIRS Satellite Measurements from 1980 to 2015: Development toward a Consistent Decadal Cloud Record
AbstractThis paper presents the cloud-parameter data records derived from High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS) measurements from 1980 through 2015 on the NOAA and MetOp polar-orbitingExpand
Continuing the MODIS Dark Target Aerosol Time Series with VIIRS
A version of the DT AOD retrieval for the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi-National Polar-Orbiting Partnership (SNPP) is now mature enough to be released as a standard data product, and includes some upgraded features from the MODIS version. Expand

SSEC/CIMSS is supported by the NOAA JPSS program scientist and NASA to continue facilitating the use of polar orbiter satellite data through the initial development of a newly conceived Community Satellite Processing Package (CSPP) that will support the Suomi-NPP/JPSS. Expand
On the brightness threshold dependence of nonlinear wave spectrum estimation from sunglint
The effects of the choice of threshold value, and whether an objective set of criteria exist for its selection are considered, are considered in the retrieval of ocean wave spectra from sunglints. Expand
Dark Target Aerosol Retrieval for VIIRS with MODIS Continuity
Theory and experimental assessment of real-time sea-state estimation via sunglint inversion
A nonlinear retrieval model was used to invert wave image data containing sunglint to obtain the elevation power spectrum. The sunglint images were thresholded to obtain binary glint images, fromExpand
Transition of Cloud Products from MODIS to VIIRS
The activities of the Atmosphere PEATE are discussed with respect to the evaluation of MODIS and VIIRS cloud products within the LEOCAT development framework. The relevant properties of the MODIS andExpand
