Cairns, B., B.E. Carlson, A.A. Lacis, and E.E. Russell, 1997: An analysis of ground-based polarimetric sky radiance measurements. In Polarization: Measurement, Analysis, and Remote Sensing, 27 Jul. 1997, San Diego, Cal., Proc. SPIE, vol. 3121, pp. 382, doi:10.1117/12.278984.

A parametric analysis of sky radiance and polarization measurements based on a database of calculations indicated that there was information contained in the measurements that was not captured by the data base. We therefore developed an iterative algorithm for retrieving a size distribution and size resolved refractive indices of aerosols from cloud free measurements of polarized sky radiances. Preliminary results indicate that it is possible to retrieve a size resolved refractive index for a wide range of aerosol sizes, as well as an aerosol size distribution.
