THE ADVANTAGES
OF AEROSOL-UA POLARIMETRY

::: Polarization is a relative measurement that can be made accurately + many scattering angles.

::: Polarimetric ScanPol measurements will be calibrated on the orbit.

::: Polarization change with scattering angle and wavelength gives microphyscs: size, refractive index and shape of aerosol.

::: Synergy of scanner and imager will produce new quality of data, hopefully different from similar aerosol missions.



The Ukrainian Aerosol-UA instrument concept at YuzhSat platform provides synergy of precision scanner-polarimeter and imaging polarimeter, and has no analog in other planned missions.
