Abstract: Sensitivity analysis and validation of the proposed refractive index estimation method with ground based atmospheric polarized radiance measurement data is conducted. Through the sensitivity analysis, it is found that Degree of Polarization: DP is highly dependent upon surface reflectance followed by imaginary and real part of refractive index and Junge parameter. DP at 550nm is greater than that at 870nm slightly. DP is decreased in accordance with increasing of real part and is increased with increasing of imaginary part while DP is increased with increasing of Junge parameter. It is also found that the peak of DP is appeared not only 90 degree of scattering angle but also at around 150 degree, in particular, when aerosol scattering is dominant. By using the aforementioned characteristics, it may be concluded that it is possible to estimate refractive index with ground based polarized radiance measurements
