Testing the Polarization Model for TANSO-FTS on GOSAT Against Clear-Sky Observations of Sun Glint Over the Ocean

Abstract

A model is developed to relate the polarized signals measured by the thermal and near infrared sensor for carbon observations-Fourier transform spectrometer (TANSO-FTS) on Japan's Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite to Stokes' vector for radiation leaving the target. The model requires the position and velocity of the satellite, the yaw angle between TANSO… (More)
