|Full title||ConsIstent Retrieval of Cloud Aerosol Surface|
|Cost||250 K €|
|Action line||R&D Studies for Advanced Methods|
|Status||Kicked Off on 29/09/2017||Missions||Sentinel-3/SLSTR and Sentinel-3/OLCI|
CIRCAS aims at providing a set of atmospheric (cloud and aerosol) and surface (albedo) products derived from S3A/SLSTR observations retrieved using the same radiative transfer physics and assumptions.
The retrieval is based on the CISAR (Combined Inversion of Surface and Atmosphere pRoperties) algorithm. CISAR is an advanced mathematical method developed by Rayference for the joint retrieval of surface reflectance and atmospheric (cloud and aerosols) properties from observations acquired by space-based imagers.
