Abstract
Accurate multi-spectral, multi-angle polarimetric measurements are a key remote sensing tool for the determination of the burden and microphysical properties of atmospheric aerosols and, as an adjunct, for the correction of these atmospheric effects in spectroradiometric remote sensing applications. This paper describes the performance of the Research Scanning Polarimeter (RSP), provides examples of using the RSP for aerosol remote sensing, and assesses the potential synergy between spectroradiometric and polarimetric measurements.
