    • Solar radiative effects of a Saharan dust plume observed during SAMUM assuming spheroidal model particles 

      Otto, Sebastian; Bierwirth, Eike; Weinzierl, Bernadett; Kandler, Konrad; Esselborn, Michael; Tesche, Matthias; Schladitz, Alexander; Wendisch, Manfred; Trautmann, Thomas (2009-02-02)
      The solar optical properties of Saharan mineral dust observed during the Saharan Mineral Dust Experiment (SAMUM) were explored based on measured size-number distributions and chemical composition. The size-resolved complex ...
    • Spectral surface albedo over Morocco and its impact on radiative forcing of Saharan dust 

      Bierwirth, Eike; Wendisch, Manfred; Ehrlich, Andre; Heese, Birgit; Tesche, Matthias; Althausen, Dietrich; Schladitz, Alexander; Mueller, D.; Otto, Sebastian; Trautmann, Thomas; Dinter, Tilman; von Hoyningen-Huene, Wolfgang; Kahn, Ralph (2009-02)
      In May-June 2006, airborne and ground-based solar (0.3-2.2 mu m) and thermal infrared (4-42 mu m) radiation measurements have been performed in Morocco within the Saharan Mineral Dust Experiment (SAMUM). Upwelling and ...
    • Thermal IR radiative properties of mixed mineral dust and biomass aerosol during SAMUM-2 

      Köhler, Claas H.; Trautmann, Thomas; Lindermeir, Erwin; Vreeling, Willem; Lieke, Kirsten; Kandler, Konrad; Weinzierl, Bernadett; Gross, Silke; Tesche, Matthias; Wendisch, Manfred (2011-09-01)
      Ground-based high spectral resolution measurements of downwelling radiances from 800 to 1200cm-1 were conducted between 20 January and 6 February 2008 within the scope of the SAMUM-2 field experiment. We infer the spectral ...
