Abstract:

Analysis of the Midway data set shows that the aerosol content determined with the two-channel technique is less accurate than with the one-channel method. An error analysis indicates that the main error sources affecting the use of the two-channel technique are the unknown atmospheric ozone and water vapor contents and the AVHRR sensor noise if it is assumed that the ozone and water vapor contents would be known in operational use of the technique, then only the AVHRR sensor noise is of concern.
