Aerosols have large impacts on radiative transfer through scattering and extinction, which distort the satellite signals in earth observation application. In the paper, we apply lidar for measuring aerosol signals simultaneously when earth observation satellite flyover. In this way, the aerosol influence could be removed precisely by the combination of real-time lidar data and atmospheric radiance transmission model. Here, the aerosol optical depth retrieved by lidar data is integrated into the 6S model for satellite image atmospheric correction. The primary results are shown in this paper.
