Accounting for surface reflectance anisotropy in satellite retrievals of tropospheric

  title={Accounting for surface reflectance anisotropy in satellite retrievals of tropospheric},

Surface reflectance is a key parameter in satellite trace gas retrievals in the UV/visible range and in particular for the retrieval of nitrogen dioxide (NO 2) vertical tropospheric columns (VTCs). Current operational retrievals rely on coarse-resolution reflectance data and do not account for the generally anisotropic properties of surface reflectance. Here we present a NO 2 VTC retrieval that uses MODIS bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) data at high temporal (8 days) and… CONTINUE READING
