Abstract

The ESA Climate Change Initiative Aerosol project has produced a number of global aerosol Essential Climate Variable (ECV) products from a set of European satellite instruments with different characteristics.

This dataset comprises monthly products of Absorbing Aerosol Index (AAI), produced using the Multi-Sensor UVAI algorithm, Version 1.4.7.

For further details about these data products please see the documentation section.
