Comparing Products of processing airborne NASA and Russian Cloud Data

  title={Comparing Products of processing airborne NASA and Russian Cloud Data},
  author={Jefwa M. Genya and Irina Melnikova and Charles K. Gatebe},
Data from airborne experiments with NASA′s Cloud Absorption Radiometer and old airborne spectral data obtained in the USSR is analyzed. Earlier authors presented the algorithm and first results of NASA data processing. Here the regularization of solution is accomplished and final data are compared with optical parameters obtained from old Russian experimental data. NASA observations are in 8 spectral channels. In this study the analytical approach of inverse asymptotic formulas of the transfer… CONTINUE READING
