I have a couple questions related to strongly absorbing aerosols:
1) I'm wondering if there are any recommendations on the best approach on how to deal with atmospheric correction in the case of episodic strongly absorbing aerosols e.g. large dust events. I know I can play around with the
aer_opt options in
l2gen, but what if the aerosols cover only part of the image and not the whole scene? My understanding is, as things stand currently, there is nothing we can really do about that i.e. if I select an
aer_opt model (and don't use the default) it gets applied to the whole scene - correct?
2) Are there instructions anywhere on how to actually select the aerosol model I want (from the aermodels list)? Sean alludes to his method in the following: https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/forum/oceancolor/topic_show.pl?pid=30090;hl=aermod - are there more details somewhere? Or is the model list somewhere?
