Description

This report includes results for the entire period of this award 9 September 2003 through 14 February 2005. Two contributions were in broadband shortwave irradiance measurements. One included conducting the second diffuse horizontal broadband shortwave irradiance IOP to establish a working standard for diffuse horizontal shortwave irradiance, where none exists. The results are summarized in a paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres. Another broadband shortwave effort was in the comparison of clear-sky measurements of broadband diffuse and direct irradiance during the May 2003 Aerosol IOP with six radiative transfer models of direct and diffuse irradiance using aerosol and ... continued below

Description

This report includes results for the entire period of this award 9 September 2003 through 14 February 2005. Two contributions were in broadband shortwave irradiance measurements. One included conducting the second diffuse horizontal broadband shortwave irradiance IOP to establish a working standard for diffuse horizontal shortwave irradiance, where none exists. The results are summarized in a paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres. Another broadband shortwave effort was in the comparison of clear-sky measurements of broadband diffuse and direct irradiance during the May 2003 Aerosol IOP with six radiative transfer models of direct and diffuse irradiance using aerosol and other data inputs carefully measured during the Aerosol IOP. A paper with the results has been submitted to the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres; it is in review. A third area of research was in spectral radiative transfer model comparisons made using three models and measurements made with the visible rotating shadowband spectroradiometer (RSS) during the first diffuse irradiance IOP in 2001. Besides these contributions that have resulted in papers and/or presentations, the principal investigator (PI) consulted with science team and infrastructure representatives to improve aerosol optical depth measurements and to produce a spectral surface albedo product.
