The AMARSI project aims at the development and validation of aerosol retrieval algorithms over ocean. One algorithm will be developed for application with data from the Multi Spectral Imager (MSI) on EarthCARE. A second algorithm will be developed using the combined information from AATSR and MERIS, for application to similar instruments on Sentinel-3, i.e. the Sea and Land Surface Temperature Imager (SLTS) and the Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (OLCI), respectively. A forward model has been developed based on SCIATRAN to simulate the top-of-atmosphere signal over clear sky ocean scenes.
