Aerosol properties gridded data from 1995 to present derived from satellite observations is now published on the CDS catalogue

This published dataset provides observational records of aerosol properties obtained from observations collected by various satellite instruments. The main variables provided by this dataset are: aerosol optical depth, fine mode aerosol optical depth, dust aerosol optical depth, single scattering albedo, aerosol layer height and aerosol extinction coefficient. These variables are derived from observations from several sensors using a set of different processing techniques. This provides the possibility to derive a large set of complementary aerosol properties needed to describe the complex nature of atmospheric aerosols. Selected observational records in this dataset are extended in time on a semi-annual basis. At the moment of extending, these records are up-to-date until five months behind present time. The data are now available to download through the CDS catalogue at:!/dataset/satellite-aerosol-properties?tab=overview

This dataset was produced on behalf of the Copernicus Climate Change Service.
