Abstract
In recent years aerosol optical depths have been estimated from AVHRR satellite images on a regular basis. One of the primary uncertainties of these methods is in the choice of the aerosol phase function. In this paper the possibility of using the ratio of AVHRR channel 1 and channel 2 to infer the value of the aerosol phase function is studied. For this purpose a large number of marine aerosol measurements are employed to study the response of NOAA AVHRR satellites for various aerosol cases.
