Introduction to the Lecture:

Aerosols and clouds play an important role in the global climate system, exerting a significant impact on global and local weather, climate and environment by influencing global energy balance and water cycle. Therefore, it is of critical importance to observe the optical and microphysical properties of aerosols and clouds. The remote sensing of aerosol and cloud is also the most difficult challenge in atmospheric remote sensing and detection by far. This report focuses on the key issues of aerosol and cloud remote sensing, especially satellite remote sensing, and introduces the basic principles, main methods and data products of aerosol and cloud remote sensing, as well as some latest research developments in these two fields.
