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°.
