[1] Measurements of aerosol optical depth have become more numerous since the mid1990s with the onset of commercially available, high-quality, low-maintenance automatic instrumentation. The development of several networks for aerosol measurements, and the next day availability of preliminary data for some, have further enhanced interest in the products this type of measurement can provide. With several networks operating globally and others operating either regionally or continentally within… CONTINUE READING
