Abstract
In the modeling study, the characteristics, of the wavelengths ranging from the visible, near IR, and entire thermal IR spectra up to 40 μm have been investigated systematically. We find that the wavelengths of 1.38 μm and 25.0 μm located, respectively, in the near- and far-IR water vapor bands are superior to the other IR channels and have potential possibility of remote sensing of microphysical and optical properties of cirrus clouds.
