  author={Sundar A. Christopher and Jie Zhang},
Using the NOAA-14 1-km Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) and the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES-8) imager data, smoke aerosol optical thickness (t) is retrieved over land during the Smoke, Clouds and Radiation-Brazil (SCAR-B) experiment in Brazil during August–September 1995. The satellite-retrievedt values are then compared against ground-based sunphotometer derived t values from the Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) program. Both the AVHRR and GOES-8… CONTINUE READING
