1. Introduction Aerosols contribute directly to atmospheric variability and to Earth’s radiative balance through scattering and absorption of solar radiation. Aerosols also contribute indirectly through complex aerosol–cloud interactions (ACI). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) indicates that while the mechanisms of aerosol direct effects are well known, the uncertainties in the estimates of aerosol direct and indirect effects are larger than any

.g., Larar et al. 2010 ). Ocean-based campaigns such as this provide the tightest control on the lower-boundary (surface) radiometric variables (e.g., Nalli et al. 2006 ). a. Experimental overview Radiance observations at high spectral resolution (unapodized, 0.25 cm −1 ) were obtained during JAIVEx from the NPP Atmospheric Sounder Test Bed-Interferometer (NAST-I) ( Smith et al. 2005 ), an FTS system similar to IASI and CrIS, but designed for high-altitude aircraft in support of JPSS sounder risk
