Abstract

Scattering from atmospheric aerosols causes blurring of satellite images. A study of this effect suggests that it might be possible to evaluate aerosol properties from these images. We consider an aerosol layer superimposed on a surface with a one-dimensional sinusoidal variation in reflectivity and with a half-plane reflectivity variation. A single scattering approximation is used to show that information about the aerosol layer height and optical depth can be extracted provided the variation in ground reflectivity is known.
