Short summary
Satellite-measured radiance from an Earth scene comprises light scattered and absorbed by gases, clouds and aerosols in the atmosphere and by the Earth surface. To retrieve aerosol information, the signal from clouds, gases and the surface must be separated from the aerosol signal. This paper highlights the gas absorption correction method used by the MODIS dark-target aerosol retrieval algorithm and demonstrates that aerosol retrieval accuracy depends on accurate gas absorption correction.
