Abstract: [1] 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…
