Professor Zhibo Zhang (UMBC) and Dr. Steve Platnick (GSFC) organized a mini-workshop on cloud-aerosol remote sensing at UMBC on 10 April, 2015 (11:30am to 5pm). There were seven invited speakers gave presentations on various topics related to cloud and aerosol remote sensing from satellite instruments.
Hyoun-Myoung Cho (JCET): A framework for understanding and quantifying the sub-pixel inhomogeneity on cloud optical thickness and effective radius retrieval from MODIS
Frank Werner (UMBC): ASTER--‐MODIS analysis and comparison: Preliminary Results
Chenxi Wang (ESSIC/UMD): Ice Cloud Retrieval Comparisons between the MODIS C6 and OE--IR
Roy Prouty (UMBC): Influence of above--‐cloud aerosols on the angular distribution of cloud bi--‐directional reflectance: implications for direct effect estimation.
Gala Wind (SSAI): Cloud Optical and Microphysical Properties from MSG SEVIRI;
Thomas Fauchez (ORAU): Inhomogeneity effect on infrared-based cirrus cloud property retrieval.
Benjamin Marchant (USRA): A (short) Introduction to Image Processing for Remote Sensing Applications;
