Description: Centre for Atmospheric and Instrumentation Research (CAIR), University of Hertfordshire, College Lane, Hatfield, Herts AL109AB, UK. Oceanic phytoplankton can affect in-water and atmospheric radiation fields. In this study, we develop case 1 (without noncovarying particles) and case 2 (including noncovarying particles) waters model including Raman scattering in order to examine the chlorophyll impacts on the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) Aerosol Index and aerosol single scattering albedo. The waters model is coupled with a radiation transfer model (VLIDORT) for calculating TOMS Aerosol Index and retrieval of aerosol single scattering albedo. The retrieval is constrained by chlorophyll concentration from Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) and Moderate Resolution Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MODIS) data, aerosol optical depth from MODIS, and aerosol vertical profiles from a global chemical transport model (GEOS-CHEM). We find the retrieved aerosol single scattering albedo is strongly influenced by chlorophyll concentration, particularly in the regions of subtropical Atlantic Ocean and Indian Ocean. The maximum deviation between the aerosol single scattering albedo retrieved with and withouout considering chlorophyll can reach 10 percent. Thus, it is important to take account of the phytoplankton impacts on atmospheric remote sensing measurements.
