Aerosol quantitative retrieval from remote sensing over land surface is still a challenging task, especially for bright land areas such as desert, urban, coast, arid and semi-arid regions. A new aerosol optical depth (AOD) and surface reflectance remote sensing retrieval model is developed by exploiting a kernel-driven BRDF (Bidirectional Reflectance… CONTINUE READING
