white aerosol ?

Hi

options for aer_opt in l2gen

set to  0: White aerosol extrapolation.
Can someone explain a bit more details of what is done with this option ?

Thanks,

hui/UNH

Aerosol radiance is determined by the band set as aer_wave_long (typically 865nm or closest to it)
This value is subtracted from all bands in a spectrally flat (white) manner.

Dear Sean,
You means it refers to 'UV-AC' algorithm(atmospheric correction using ultraviolet wavelength) which is provided by Xianqiang He(2012) ?

No.  I mean the derived aerosol radiance is spectrally flat.
