Short summary
Sastrugi are surface roughness elements on Antarctica that modify the anisotropy of reflected shortwave solar radiation. This can create biases in the shortwave flux inverted from radiances measured by the satellite-borne Clouds and the Earths's Radiant Energy System instruments. Here we provide a detailed description of the methodology we use to account for their effect and examples of the reduction in bias from using our new method.
