SAGE II aerosol extinction and scattering data from balloon-borne photography
MetadataShow full item record
Earth limb radiance and extinction near sunset have been observed from a balloon borne gondola nearly simultaneously and on air masses close to those probed by the SAGE II instrumentation on April 22, 1985. The results show the importance of accuracy of the altitude determination on the aerosol measurements. They indicate an important altitude dependence of the stratospheric aerosol granulometry in agreement with SAGE II results.
