Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS. i Quantify and understand the inherent optical properties IOP s of natural particles from a standpoint of measuring size-distribution ii Understand how the properties of particles composition, shape, and internal structure affect their IOP. iii Incorporate these properties into radiative transfer models for prediction of downwelling and upwelling radiances.
