A methodology for the development of gridded datasets of aerosol optical depth (AOD) over continents is presented. This study focuses on the AOD at 550 nm and the Angstrom turbidity coefficients α and s determined from spectral data, e.g., by sunphotometers. A method to derive the broadband AOD from the air mass, α and s, is proposed. Different satellite-based datasets (AVHRR, MISR and MODISGOCART) are used to develop monthly-average AOD relative to their respective grid resolution. Corrections…
