Abstract
Cirrus cloud sounder (CCS) is a photopolarimeter with six radiation channels and a polarization channel. By CCS, cirrus cloud and other kinds of cloud can be detected from space by means of reflectance, cloud peak pressure, polarization and optical depth. For clear sky, atmospheric aerosols can be also sounded remotely from space. Linear, elliptical and circular polarization can be measured by the polarization channel.
