[1] The minimum acceptable accuracy of the top of the atmosphere radiative flux of ΔF = 0.5 W/m2 leads to the required accuracy in satellite based aerosol optical depth (AOD) retrieval of about Δτ = 0.015 over the land and Δτ = 0.010 over the ocean. None of the current operational satellite based instruments for AOD retrieval has been able to achieve this accuracy. The RMSE (Root Mean Square Error) of the AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) is typically between 0.06 and 0.15, while… CONTINUE READING
