[1] Aerosol single scattering albedo (wo) is a primary factor dictating aerosol radiative effect. Ground-based remote sensing of wo has been employed most widely using spectral sky radiance measurements made from a scanning Sun photometer. Reliable results can be achieved for high aerosol loadings and for solar zenith angle >50 . This study presents an alternative method using spectral direct radiance measurements or aerosol optical depths together with total sky irradiance to retrieve wo. The… CONTINUE READING
