The rotating shadowband spectroradiometer (RSS) is a high-resolution device that measures the total, direct, and diffuse intensity of sunlight at 1016 different wavelengths. RSS data can be used to retrieve gas amounts and aerosol properties as well as to assess the accuracy of retrievals using data from lower-spectral resolution instruments, such as the multifilter rotating shadowband radiometer (MFRSR). An algorithm to retrieve aerosol and gas amounts and the aerosol size distribution from RSS data, usi…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
