NOAA KLM User's Guide
NOAA/NESDIS currently produces Aerosol products from NOAA-14 AVHRR data on a weekly basis, using a revised (Phase 2) single channel algorithm for aerosol optical thickness retrieval over oceans from radiances in Channel 1. This algorithm scales the upward satellite radiances in cloud-free conditions to aerosol optical thickness using an updated radiative transfer model of the ocean and atmosphere. The primary products are a global one degree map of Aerosol Optical Thickness based on a composite of one week's worth of data and the monthly mean product.
These products are archived at the National Climatic Data Center in both hardcopy chart and digital dataset form.
