Description
CAI( visualizes the state of the atmosphere and the ground surface during the daytime. The image data from CAI are used to determine the cloud existence over an extended area that includes the FTS's field of view (FOV). When clouds and aerosols are detected in FOV, cloud characteristics and aerosol amounts are calculated. The information is used to correct the effects of the clouds and the aerosols on the spectra obtained with FTS.
