Frontiers Research Topics
Clouds over Earth
This Research Topic - From the Satellite to the Earth's Surface: Studies Relevant to NASA's Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, Ocean Ecosystems (PACE) Mission - will encompass fundamental radiative transfer studies, with application to the atmosphere, ocean or coupled atmosphere-ocean system. It will include remote sensing of aerosols, clouds and trace gases, over ocean or over land, but with particular focus on algorithms that take advantage of the Ocean Color Instrument's new capabilities or multi-angle polarimetry. The Research Topic embraces studies of atmospheric correction over ocean including addressing issues of aerosols, cloud masking, foam, bubbles, ice etc., as well as ocean bio-optics and biogeochemical studies taking advantage of the PACE and polarization spectral capabilities. Finally, all manner of papers are sought including reviews, research articles and papers that address societal impacts expected of the PACE mission. Frontiers
