MISR aerosol optical depth retrievals over southern Africa during the SAFARI-2000 Dry Season Campaign

Authors


Abstract

This paper presents, for the first time, retrievals of aerosol optical depths from Multi-angle Imaging Spectro-Radiometer (MISR) observations over land. Application of the MISR operational algorithm to data taken over southern Africa during the SAFARI-2000 dry season campaign yields results that compare favorably with coincident surface-based measurements taken by the AERONET radiometer network.
