3 Eyk Bösche et al. BBC2 Workshop, Oktober 2004: Eyk Bösche et al. BBC2 Workshop, Oktober 2004: Simulation of skylight polarization with the DAK model and comparisons with measurements Introduction Radiative forcing by tropospheric aerosols depends on their optical properties like optical thickness, single scattering albedo and phase function. Basic idea: Spectral resolved VIS and NIR measurements of the diffuse sunlight at various directions in the suns principal plane with inclusion of polarization. Comparison of measurements and radiative transfer simulations Comparison allows to draw conclusions on: the size distribution, the refractive index and vertical distribution of aerosols. From the knowledge of the size distribution and the refractive index the single scattering albedo and the phase function can be derived.

4 Eyk Bösche et al. BBC2 Workshop, Oktober 2004: Eyk Bösche et al. BBC2 Workshop, Oktober 2004: Simulation of skylight polarization with the DAK model and comparisons with measurements Mie-Simulations (1/4) First mie-calculations have been performed with the following standard input parameters: wavelength 675 nm real and imaginary part of the refraction index of 1.5 and log normal size distribution with a sigma of 1.8 mode radius of 0.1 microns To analyse how sensitiv the mie calculations are to changes of one of these parameters, each parameter was changed in a certain range, while the rest of the parameters remaind constant. The mie simulations serve as input for the DAK-simulations

BBC2 Workshop, Oktober 2004: Simulation of skylight polarization with the DAK model and comparisons with measurements DAK-Simulations (1/5) The DAK-simulations have been performed for multiple scattering and the following standard input parameters: a surface albedo of 0.15 an optical thickness of 0.39 a standard midlatitude atmospheric profile and the mie-aerosol (output of the mie-simulations) was put in the first layer (first one km) while varying the optical thickness the standard mie aerosol was used.
