Intercomparison between multi-angle imaging spectroradiometer ( MISR ) and sunphotometer aerosol optical thickness in dust source regions over China : implications for satellite aerosol retrievals and radiative forcing calculations

Abstract

The multi-angle imaging spectroradiometer (MISR) aerosol optical thickness (AOT) product (τ MISR) was compared with sunphotometer AOT (τ SP) at Dunhuang (40.09◦N, 94.41◦E), located near the Takalamakan and Gobi dust source regions in China, during March–November 2000. This study is unique because AOT measurements from the ground are not routinely available… (More)
