AVHRR Aerosol Optical Thickness

Sample product image of NOAA CDR AVHRR Aerosol Optical Thickness; it depicts 1981 thru 2009 average, for the .63 micron Channel.

This dataset provides a high quality Climate Data Record (CDR) of Aerosol Optical Thickness (AOT).

The Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) AOT CDR provides an optical measure of aerosol column loading derived from the global ocean pixel-level PATMOS-x AVHRR clear-sky reflectance CDR at 0.63μm channel; both daily and monthly products are available.
