View Full Version : Numerical expressions for Solar and satellite zenith angles and azimuth angles

4th November 2009, 07:25 PM

I am working on GOES Satellite data products. I would like to know the generalized numerical expressions of the solar zenith angle, satellite zenith angle, solar azimuth angle and satellite azimuth angle.

I am running an IDL code which have the subroutines for the four angles but I don't find the expressions from them are similar with any literature described numerical expressions.

Will the satellite remote sensing uses any different expressions for obtaining the four angles? Please suggest me.

Kindly can anyone help me in getting the numerical expressions (generalized) in illustrated manner along with any exceptions...

Looking forward to hearing from expertise people,

With regards,
