This setup has only been used by Patricia and myself. It has been modified (see below), mainly to calculate fewer tangent heights.

- Geometry:

Scan | solar zenith angle | relative azimuth angle | earth radius |
---|---|---|---|

1 | 77.77 | 22.23 | 6357.5 |

2 | 47.30 | 34.41 | 6364.9 |

3 | 28.71 | 67.56 | 6374.9 |

4 | 26.84 | 96.47 | 6377.7 |

5 | 52.88 | 142.55 | 6370.9 |

- Wavelengths: 295 300 350 450 550 750 950 1200 1400 1500 1700

- Albedo: 0.1 (also test 0.0)

- Pressure and temperature: US-standard atmosphere, for comparison also Rayleigh scattering coefficients are provided

- output altitude: 100 km

- Scattering mode: single scattering and multiple scattering

- Rayleigh depolarisation value: 0.0

Rayleigh coefficients are provided on levels. Important: they have to be averaged for layers!!!!

Plots of the comparison can be found at
