Abstract : This document describes research that includes the implementation of atmospheric transmission models, collection and analysis of digital image data from GOES, DMSP, and NOAA satellites, development of a monochromatic radiative transfer model for marine stratus clouds, and the design and testing of a spectral radiometer for marine boundary layer applications. Summaries of the research project and results are provided in this report. Section 2 describes the analysis of estimating clear-sky atmospheric transmittance from satellite data. Section 3 summarizes the research pertaining to remote sensing applications for boundary layer clouds. Keywords: Electrooptics; Electromagnetic; Aerosols; High resolution radiometer; Propagation; Atmosphere; Albedo.
