[1] Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) measurements (7 channels: 0.47–2.1 mm, 250–500 m resolutions) provide us with new insights into the characteristics of global aerosols. MODIS retrieves not only aerosol loading but also the fraction of fine mode particle. In this paper we demonstrate MODIS capability for use in monitoring global,(More)
—The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrora-diometer (MODIS) aerosol retrieval algorithm was developed to derive aerosol properties at a global scale, suitable for climate studies. Under favorable conditions (clear sky and over dark surfaces), the standard 10 10 km MODIS aerosol products are also useful on regional scales to monitor aerosol distributions and(More)
