Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS The long-term goal of this research is to develop an initialization scheme for a multi-dimensional, predictive aerosol model in coastal regions. The initialization scheme will include data gathering, quality control and data assimilation of the available aerosol observations, including satellite radiances, ground-based remote sensing, point measurements, and the previous aerosol forecast. OBJECTIVES The objectives of this program are to 1 investigate and evaluate the existing and proposed aerosol retrievals from satellites for applicability to aerosol model initialization and 2 develop and test aerosol analysis and data assimilation techniques using satellite and other aerosol measurements.
