... /Ed(l) can be No commercially produced instruments are currently used along with the assumption that the BRDF is Lambertian available for in situ measurement of the VSF over the full to obtain satisfactory predictions of water-leaving radiance range of scattering angles, but several unique instruments for most remote sensing purposes (Mobley et al., 2003)

... They also are needed to understand the fundamental connections between If highly accurate atmospheric RT calculations are to be water column constituents and inherent optical properties. In performed, vertical profiles of temperature, water vapor, and principle, the following should be measured: cloud type should be measured (typically with balloon-borne instruments or ground-based LIDAR)
From page 93...
... The development for measurement of selected elements of the magnitude and wavelength dependence of the errors depend Muller matrix, which if available would enable underwater on the atmospheric and oceanic properties, sun angle, and polarized RT calculations to be made for three elements of viewing direction. The errors therefore cannot be quantified the Stokes Vector.

This material may be derived from roughly machine-read images, and so is provided only to facilitate research.
