Spatial variability of the atmosphere in southern England
Knowledge of atmospheric parameters is important for many applications. I came to this project from the point of view of satellite imaging: it is very important to correct satellite images for the effects of the atmosphere. However, most satellite image corrections are based upon a single parameterisation of the atmospheric conditions across the whole image. However, when the image is large - for example, covering most of southern England, this is unlikely to be true.
This research investigates the variability in key atmospheric parameters across southern England from various data sources, and simulates the effect of this variability on the correction of satellite image data.
A paper based on this research has been submitted to the International Journal of Remote Sensing
