[1] Since first light in early 2000, operational global quantitative retrievals of aerosol properties over land have been made from Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) observed spectral reflectance. These products have been continuously evaluated and validated, and opportunities for improvements have been noted. We have replaced the surface reflectance assumptions, the set of aerosol model optical properties, and the aerosol lookup table (LUT). This second-generation…

Effects of neglecting polarization on the MODIS aerosol retrieval over land

A future version of aerosol retrieval from MODIS over land will include polarization within the atmosphere, due to the neglect of polarization introduced into global and long-term averages, yet can produce very large errors on smaller scales and individual retrievals.
