Short summary
This study presents an original method to evaluate the aerosol optical thickness, the single scattering albedo and the cloud optical thickness for aerosol above cloud scenes. It is based on multi-angle total and polarized radiances both provided by the A-train satellite instrument POLDER/PARASOL. This algorithm has been applied together with a radiative transfer code over the South East Atlantic Ocean. The mean direct radiative effect for August and September 2006 is found to be 33.5W.m−2.
