Abstract

The surface-leaving radiance model developed in Part I [Appl. Opt. 47, 3701 (2008)] is validated against an exhaustive set of Fourier transform spectrometer field observations acquired at sea. Unlike prior limited studies, these data include varying all-sky atmospheric conditions (clear, cloudy, and dusty), with regional samples from the tropics, mid-latitudes, and high latitudes. Our analyses show the model to have reduced bias over standard models at emission angles 45°.
