Abstract. This paper presents the Aerosol Optical Thickness and surface properties simultaneous retrieval from the CISAR algorithm applied both to geostationary and polar orbiting satellite observations. The theoretical concepts of the CISAR algorithm have been described in Govaerts and Luffarelli (2017). This paper aims to demonstrate CISAR applicability to actual satellite data acquired from different sensors flying on different orbits. For that purpose, CISAR has been applied to SEVIRI and PROBA-V observations acquired over 20 AERONET stations during year 2015. CISAR retrieval from the two instrument observations is evaluated against independent datasets such as MODIS land product and AERONET data. The performance differences resulting from the two types of orbit are discussed, analysing and comparing the information content of SEVIRI and PROBA-V observations.

Short summary
This paper presents the application of the CISAR (Combined Inversion of Surface and AeRosol) algorithm on both geostationary (SEVIRI) and polar orbiting (PROBA-V) satellite data. This manuscript analyses the information content associated to the observations acquired by these two instruments and its implication on the joint retrieval of surface and atmospheric properties. CISAR retrieved aerosol properties and surface albedo are compared with AERONET and MODIS data respectively.
