Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The direct and indirect radiative effects of aerosols suspended in the atmosphere above clouds (ACA) are a highly uncertain component of both regional and global climate. Much of this uncertainty is observational in nature most orbital remote sensing algorithms were not designed to simultaneously retrieve aerosol and cloud optical properties in the same vertical column.
