Zusammenfassung
The classification of cloud and aerosol by means of multi-axis differential optical absorption spectroscopy (MAX-DOAS) is studied in this paper. Firstly, the characters of variation of color index (CI), radiance, and O-4 air mass factor (AMF) are analyzed in the following kinds of weather cases, i.e. "clear and low aerosol load", "clear and high aerosol load", "broken cloud", "continuous and thin cloud" as well as "continuous and thick clouds". We found that the CI consecutively decreases with the growing up of optical depth of cloud and aerosol. And the speedy temporal variation of CI is always going along with the occurrence of broken cloud. For the case of continuous cloud, the CIs of observations for all the elevation angles are similar to each other. At the same time, the thick cloud case normally causes radiance dropping and O-4 AMF growing up strongly. Based on these characters, the scheme of cloud classification for MAX-DOAS is built. Using this scheme, the classification results for the MAX-DOAS observations in the period from 1 June 2012 to 30 October 2012 are analyzed statistically. The occurrence probabilities of the broken cloud and thin continuous cloud are the two largest weather kinds. The percentage of the broken cloud in all the observations is 66%, and that of the thin continuous cloud case is 14.3%. For these two kinds of weathers, the mean NO2 tropospheric vertical column densities (V-CD) are respectively 35% and 66% larger than the value for the clear and low aerosol. Meanwhile, the standard deviation, which represents the stability of the measured NO2 V-CD is two times larger than that of the clear and low aerosol cases. In the weather of thick continuous cloud, suddenly appearing of peak and valley are often observed. In conclusion, the real time classification of cloud and aerosol is very important and valuable in analyzing of MAX-DOAS data and the guarantee of data quality.
