The objective of the ADIENT (Appraising the Direct Impacts of aErosol oN climaTe) project was quantifying the direct effect of aerosols on the Earth's radiation budget, via scattering and/or absorption of radiation.
This monthly data is a subset of the GlobAEROSOL climatology from the Along Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR) instrument on-board ERS-2, data. It spans the period 1 July 1995 to 10 July 2009.
The dataset contains measurements of the following parameters over the globe:
Aerosol optical thickness due to aerosol
Angstrom Coefficient average,
Aerosol speciation (from a selection of 5 pre-defined types:maritime, continental, desert, urban/polluted and biomass burning).
