Short summary
The study presents a comprehensive tool for accurate calculation of solar flux as part of a novel algorithm GRASP (Generalized Retrieval of Aerosol and Surface Properties). We show that simplification of details in directional properties of atmospheric aerosol scattering and reflectance of underlying surface causes systematic biases in evaluation of aerosol radiative effect. Presented application for satellite data is one more step in the measurement-based estimate of aerosol effect on climate.
