Abstract
It is generally agreed that image collection technology for high altitude aircraft and satellite remote sensing programs is far ahead of data interpretation and exploitation, especially for oceanographic purposes. Data presented here contribute to the hypothesis that remote sensing records reveal, in their anomalous gray shades and thermal evidence for upwelling, specific differences in aerosol chemistry that reflect both surface and sub-surface sources. Specific illustrations of the striking changes in aerosol composition are provided for continental, marine, and coastal regions, highlighting the unique enrichment of nitrate particulates in areas of coastal upwelling. Spectra characteristic of these differing atmospheric particulates, as collected in numerous field studies, are included for the mid-infrared range. These spectra provide essential "ground truth" for satellite and high altitude aircraft image interpretation.
