    "Broadband Radiometry during EarthCARE: An Improved Solar Radiance-to-Flux Conversion"

    Presented by Florian Tornow, Freie Universitat Berlin

    11 am, Large Conference Room, Bldg. 490

    Thursday, September 5, 2019, 11:00 am

    Hosted by: Mike Jensen

    Outgoing radiative fluxes at top-of-atmosphere (TOA) are driven by the interaction of clouds, aerosols, and radiation. The upcoming EarthCARE mission aims to improve our understanding of this interaction and compares shortwave (SW) and longwave TOA fluxes from (1) radiative transfer simulations – acting on cloud and aerosol properties retrieved from onboard active and passive instruments – with (2) flux estimates based on broadband radiometer (BBR) measured radiances over horizontal domains of 10x10 km. To improve BBR-based TOA SW flux estimates, this talk explores a new approach that incorporates additional parameters (cloud-top effective radius and cloud-topped water vapor) and produces significantly different flux estimates when compared against state-of-the-art methodology.
