Space-borne active and passive remote-sensing techniques and theories for measuring atmospheric and other environmental variables have advanced rapidly in recent years. Ground-based and in situ measurements of atmospheric components, such as cloud and aerosol particles, are essential to calibrate and validate satellite data. Fundamental atmospheric physics, such as light scattering and radiative transfer in the atmosphere, is critical for the comprehension of remotely sensed data. This JpGU session will tackle all these topics in order to seek the trend and novel developments in the atmospheric remote sensing field. New techniques such as passive spectral and polarimetric measurements of the atmospheric compositions, active instrument detection of aerosols or gases, and latest development in radiative transfer and light scattering modeling are especially welcomed. This session invites the atmospheric remote sensing community to report their results and discuss future directions of atmospheric remote sensing.
