In the experimental section we refer to the importance of better understanding the science return of remote sensing observations. Although the section is labelled "Laboratory Studies," it makes sense to include all relevant theoretical considerations needed to increase our understanding of the process and techniques discussed in that section.
Ludmilla, please send your input to Reggie and myself, so that we update the lab section accordingly.
PS: Please find that lab section attached, as it is obviously relevant to many aspects of the Theoretical Study section. We will add proper referencing to the other Roadmap sections in the next version. Your comments are much welcome.

Hi Ludmilla -
Good question. Would it make more sense to have it incorporated into Laboratory Studies, since it underlies observations?
