Short summary
This paper presents a new technique for retrieving aerosol optical properties using multi-wavelength and multi-pixel information over the ocean. Different from the traditional satellite aerosol retrievals conducted pixel by pixel, we derive the aerosol optical properties of multiple pixels simultaneously by adding a smoothness constraint on the spatial variation of aerosols and oceanic substances. The technique asserts that the multi-pixel scheme is conducive to aerosol retrieval over the ocean.
