Cloud optical depth retrievals from the Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) cloud mode observations

J. Christine Chiu, Chiung-Huei Huang, Alexander Marshak, Ilya Slutsker, David M. Giles, Brent N. Holben, Yuri Knyazikhin, Warren J. Wiscombe
2010 Journal of Geophysical Research  
1] Cloud optical depth is one of the most poorly observed climate variables.  ...  For 3 year climatology derived from all nonprecipitating clouds, AERONET monthly mean cloud optical depths are generally larger than cloud radar retrievals because of the current cloud mode observation  ...  The first reason is the radiative effect of a finite FOV. When a cloud is fragmented, instantaneous retrievals suffer from the "clear-sky contamination" problem [Chiu et al., 2006] .  ...
