Estimating particulate matter (PM) from space is not straightforward and is mainly achieved using the aerosol optical depth (AOD) retrieved from satellite sensors. However, AOD is a columnar measure, whereas PM is a ground observation. Linking AOD and PM remains a challenge for air pollution monitoring. In this study, a back-propagation artificial neural(More)
This study is to evaluate the sensitivity of Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD τ) to aerosol vertical profile and type, using the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) collection 6 algorithm over land. Four experiments were performed, using different aerosol properties including 3 possible non-dust aerosol models and 14 vertical distributions. The(More)
