Preliminary to the launch of the first Meteosat Second Generation satellite (MSG) and within support of the Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instrument onboard of MSG, algorithms are tested to detect aerosol optical parameters and their possible signature on the Earth Radiation Budget (ERB) using existing data from instruments on satellites in low earth orbit like NOAA/AVHRR and ScaRaB.
