microphysical processes (e.g., Stephens and Haynes 2007 ; Suzuki and Stephens 2008 ; Kubar et al. 2009 ). The ability of the MODIS sensor to observe solar radiation reflected at different wavelengths that penetrate to different cloud optical depths in clouds is also noteworthy. This provides additional information about the vertical stratification of particle sizes ( Platnick 2000 ; Chang and Li 2002 ; Nakajima et al. 2010a ) that, when combined with CloudSat observations, provides detailed insights

that is equivalent to the OI, as discussed by Hock and Jensen (1999) . They mention that kriging and OI were developed for geology and meteorology, respectively, and that the initial papers on the analysis methods were first published in 1963. As discussed in CW05 , clouds are essentially transparent to MW radiation and AMSR SSTs can be obtained in all conditions free of precipitation. Infrared measurements can only be obtained in clear-sky conditions, and cloud-contaminated data are often

1. Introduction Two papers published in the early 1990s comparing radiation transfer codes for the infrared ( Ellingson et al. 1991 ) and for the solar ( Fouquart et al. 1991 ) irradiance concluded that many of the radiation transfer codes (parameterized to reduce run time) used in climate models did not agree with state-of-the-art line-by-line radiative transfer codes; for the most part line-by-line codes agreed with one another. However, the measurements to confirm that the radiative fluxes

1. Introduction Generally, the radiative transfer process is very complicated. Fortunately, this process is dramatically simplified within earth’s atmosphere by the following three factors: 1) for solar radiation, there is no source within the atmosphere; 2) the spectral overlap between the solar and infrared radiation is very small; and 3) for the infrared, radiative, scattering is weak. The third factor holds only for a clear sky, since the gaseous scattering (Rayleigh scattering) in the

1. Introduction For infrared radiation, scattering by gas is very weak and the infrared scattering process is usually neglected. Without scattering, the absorption and emission are the dominate processes for the infrared radiative transfer. This method of neglecting scattering is consequently called the absorption approximation or the emissivity approximation. In the absorption approximation, the radiance obtained from the radiative transfer has to be converted to flux by angular integration
