Nationwide aerosol optical thickness retrieval application using grid computing platform

Aerosol optical thickness retrieval (AOT) from remotely sensed data over land is still a difficult task because the solar light reflected by the Earth-atmospheric system mainly comes from the ground surface. A novel aerosol remote sensing model SYNTAM by exploiting the synergy of TERRA and AQUA MODIS data could be used to accomplish part of the task of… (More)
