Liquid water absorption and scattering effects in DOAS retrievals over oceans

  title={Liquid water absorption and scattering effects in DOAS retrievals over oceans},
  author={Enno M Peters and Folkard Wittrock and Andreas Richter and Luis Andres Alvarado and Vladimir V. Rozanov and John P. Burrows},
Spectral effects of liquid water are present in absorption (differential optical absorption spectroscopy – DOAS) measurements above the ocean and, if insufficiently removed, may interfere with trace gas absorptions, leading to wrong results. Currently available literature cross sections of liquid water absorption are provided in coarser resolution than DOAS applications require, and vibrational Raman scattering (VRS) is mostly not considered, or is compensated for using simulated pseudo cross… CONTINUE READING
