Abstract

Based on the Matrix-Operator Method the radiative transfer code STORM (STOkes vector Radiative transfer Model) is introduced, which was developed in a joint project of DLR and Institut fuer Weltraumwissenschaften of the Freie Universitaet Berlin. STORM calculates the Stokes parameters (I, Q, U, V) in a plane parallel, multi layered atmosphere in the visible and near infrared spectral range. The scattering characteristics of aerosols are determined by Mie theory. The surface represents a Lambertian reflector or a wind ruffled water surface described by Cox-Munk model. The results of one calculation are the upward and downward directed Stokes parameters for one wavelength at a desired number of sun incident and viewing angles at varying altitudes in the principal plane and other azimuth angles. STORM is applied for an analysis in view of designing downward looking Earth observing optical remote sensing systems and values of the degree of polarization are presented as generic basis for remote sensing system design and data processing.
