Atmospheric scattering and surface polarization affect radiance measurements of polarization-sensitive instruments on orbit. Neglecting the polarization effects may lead to an inaccurate radiance/reflectance determination and underestimated radiance/reflectance uncertainty. Of the two instruments, CERES and VIIRS, slated to be intercalibrated by the CLARREO Pathfinder (CPF), the latter is known to be sensitive to polarization. The Pathfinder mission is tasked with accurately determining the uncertainty contribution of polarization and will provide the benchmark for the determination of the polarization correction factor for polarization-sensitive instruments. In this article, we show the formalism necessary to correct the reflectance for sensitivity to polarization after the CLARREO Pathfinder/VIIRS intercalibration, as well as the associated polarization uncertainty contribution to the overall intercalibrated reflectance error. To illustrate its usage, the formalism is applied to three dominant scene types.
