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 Level 2 aerosol products from the ATSR-2 instrument on the ERS-2 satellite. The data is an uncertainty-weighted ensemble of the outputs of three separate algorithms (the SU, ADV, and ORAC algorithms.) This product is version 2.6 of the ensemble product. Data is provided for the period 1995 to 2002.

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