Project Title: Earth Surface and Atmosphere Reflectivity Since 1979 from Multiple Satellites
PI Name: Jay Herman
Project Description: Project Description: This proposal concerns the production of a continuous ultraviolet reflectivity data record for the surface of the Earth and its atmosphere using multiple satellite data records since 1979 (TOMS, SBUV, SBUV-2, OMI, SeaWIFS). The scene reflectivities of the Earth at blue and ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths (320 nm to 415 nm) are low over most surfaces (except ice and snow), and are almost independent of the seasonal changes in vegetation on land and in the oceans. This makes it ideal for examining changes in radiation reflected back to space from changes in cloud and aerosol amounts, especially as affected by the start of climate change.
