摘要
Atmospheric transmittance is an important factor for atmospheric correction in the inversion of land surface parameters. Under nonprecipitating conditions, microwave atmospheric transmittance in the X-, Ku-, and Ka-bands is mainly determined by oxygen, water vapor, and cloud liquid water content. In this letter, radiosoundings from 119 stations in China, performed twice a day from January 2011 to July 2014, were used in the Salonen-Uppala cloud detection algorithm to distinguish cloud layers from layered atmospheric profiles and to estimate the cloud liquid water content therein. The resulting atmospheric transmittances at frequencies of the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-Earth Observing System over China were estimated using Liebe's millimeter-wave propagation model and Mie theory. Atmospheric transmittance maps were obtained by interpolating the results from individual sites, driving a climatological database for over China, which may be used to correct for atmospheric influence in surface parameter retrievals. The simulated transmittances were validated through a series of on-site field experiments in the North of China. We compared simulated atmospheric brightness temperature with measurements performed in situ using a ground-based radiometer system. The correlation coefficients between the measured and simulated values were 0.97, 0.99, and 0.98, in the X-, Ku-, and Ka-bands, respectively, with a root-mean-square error of 0.6, 1.6, and 9.5 K, respectively.
