Abstract

A method is proposed to recover stratospheric ozone and aerosol concentration profiles from satellite-borne polarimeter measurements of the ultraviolet light reflected from the earth’s atmosphere. A mathematical inversion is performed on simulated spectral polarization measurements demonstrating the recovery of ozone mixing ratio and aerosol scattering ratio profiles when large aerosol concentrations are present in the stratosphere.
