A21I:
Advances in Remote Sensing of Fires, Aerosols, and Air Quality Trace Gases I


Session ID#: 10937

Session Description:
Remote sensing data are increasingly used in air quality analysis and prediction. This session solicits advanced remote sensing techniques and instrument concepts for enhancing the spatial and temporal characterization of fires, aerosols, and air quality related trace gases. We invite contributions on topics including but not limited to:

1) Hyperspectral remote sensing of fires, aerosols, and air quality trace gases;

2) Novel methods to retrieve vertically resolved aerosol properties and trace gases;

3) Retrieval and application of sub-pixel fire characterization;

4) Mitigation of cloud contamination in aerosol and trace gas retrievals at the pixel and sub-pixel level;

6) Correction of aerosols effects in trace gas retrievals, and vice versa;

7) Use of complementary information content on multiple species to improve single-species retrieval accuracy
