Using high-resolution oxygen A band spectrometry (l/Dl = 60000) in the 767.7-770.7 nm wavelength range, we investigate the first and second moments of the distributions of path lengths of photons in transmitted skylight for different cloud conditions. Our observations are supported by measurements of column liquid water path by multichannel microwave radiometry, cloud structure by millimeter cloud radar observations, and cloud base by a laser ceilometer. For the investigated multilayer cloud covers (decks…
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.
