This is the final report for ONR grant N00l 73-14-1-G905 which focused on developing IR dust detection and Aerosol Optical Thickness retrievals applied to hyperspectral infrared observations. This research focused on UAV Global Hawk flights in the eastern Atlantic Ocean as part the NASA HS3 mission providing well calibrated collocated hyper-spectral IR data with coincident lidar Cloud Physics Lidar CPL data in addition to frequent drop sound measurements during the flights. This combination provides a unique, well constrained data set to investigate the information content of dust in the IR validated with the lidar profiles.
