Vertical Profiles of Droplet Size Distributions Derived from Cloud-Side Observations by the Research Scanning Polarimeter: Tests on Simulated Data.

Atmos Res 2020 Jul 25;239. Epub 2020 Feb 25.

Department of Physics, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, 1000 Hilltop Cir, Baltimore, MD 21250, USA.

The Research Scanning Polarimeter (RSP) is an airborne along-track scanner measuring the polarized and total reflectances with high angular resolution. It allows for accurate characterization of liquid water cloud droplet sizes using the rainbow structure in the polarized reflectance. RSP's observations also provide constraints on the cumulus cloud's 2D cross section, yielding estimates of its geometric shape. Read More

Investigation of the 3-D actinic flux field in mountainous terrain.

Atmos Res 2011 Nov;102(3):300-310

Institute for Meteorology, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Peter-Jordan-Straße 82, A-1190 Vienna, Austria.

During three field campaigns spectral actinic flux was measured from 290-500 nm under clear sky conditions in Alpine terrain and the associated O3- and NO2-photolysis frequencies were calculated and the measurement products were then compared with 1-D- and 3-D-model calculations. To do this 3-D-radiative transfer model was adapted for actinic flux calculations in mountainous terrain and the maps of the actinic flux field at the surface, calculated with the 3-D-radiative transfer model, are given. The differences between the 3-D- and 1-D-model results for selected days during the campaigns are shown, together with the ratios of the modeled actinic flux values to the measurements. Read More

Measuring the influence of aerosols and albedo on sky polarization.

Atmos Res 2010 Nov;98(2-4):363-367

Division for Biomedical Physics, Department of Physiology and Medical Physics, Innsbruck Medical University, Innsbruck, Austria ; Department of Physics, University of California, Berkeley, USA.

All-sky distributions of the polarized radiance are measured using an automated fish-eye camera system with a rotating polarizer. For a large range of aerosol and surface albedo situations, the influence on the degree of polarization and sky radiance is investigated. The range of aerosol optical depth and albedo is 0.
