Variability of Absorption and Optical Properties of Key Aerosol Types Observed in Worldwide Locations
Aerosol radiative forcing is a critical, though variable and uncertain, component of the global climate. Yet climate models rely on sparse information of the aerosol optical properties. In situ
Wavelength dependence of the optical depth of biomass burning, urban, and desert dust aerosols
The Angstrom wavelength exponent α, which is the slope of the logarithm of aerosol optical depth (τ a ) versus the logarithm of wavelength (λ), is commonly used to characterize the wavelength
The MODIS Aerosol Algorithm, Products, and Validation
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard both NASA’s Terra and Aqua satellites is making near-global daily observations of the earth in a wide spectral range (0.41–15 m).
Accuracy assessments of aerosol optical properties retrieved from Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) Sun and sky radiance measurements
Sensitivity studies are conducted regarding aerosol optical property retrieval from radiances measured by ground-based Sun-sky scanning radiometers of the Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET). These
Operational remote sensing of tropospheric aerosol over land from EOS moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer
Daily distribution of the aerosol optical thickness and columnar mass concentration will be derived over the continents, from the EOS moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) using dark
A review of biomass burning emissions part III: intensive optical properties of biomass burning particles
Abstract. The last decade has seen tremendous advances in atmospheric aerosol particle research that is often performed in the context of climate and global change science. Biomass burning, one of
Sources and distributions of dust aerosols simulated with the GOCART model
The global distribution of dust aerosol is simulated with the Georgia Tech/Goddard Global Ozone Chemistry Aerosol Radiation and Transport (GOCART) model. In this model all topographic lows with bare
