A003:
Advances in Atmospheric Remote Sensing Techniques and Theories





Session ID#: 22315

Session Description:
Space-borne remote-sensing techniques and theories for measuring atmospheric compositions including clouds, aerosols, and gases have advanced rapidly in recent years. Ground-based and in situ detection of atmospheric components, such as cloud and aerosol particles, are essential to calibrate and validate satellite measurements. Fundamental atmospheric physics, such as light scattering and radiative transfer in the atmosphere, is critical for the comprehension of remotely sensed data. This AGU session will tackle all these topics in order to seek the trend and novel developments in the atmospheric remote sensing field. New techniques such as spectral and polarimetric measurements of the atmospheric compositions, active instrument detection of aerosols or gases, and latest development in optical remote sensing algorithms and instruments and radiative transfer and light scattering modeling are especially welcomed. This session invites the atmospheric remote sensing community to report their results and discuss future directions of atmospheric remote sensing.
