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 the Level 3 daily and monthly aerosol products from the ATSR-2 instrument on the ERS-2 satellite, using the Swansea University (SU) algorithm, version 4.3. Data cover the period 1995 - 2003.

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