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 daily data was a subset of the GlobAEROSOL climatology from the Advanced Along Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) instrument on-board Envisat, data for the period 24 July 2002 to 25 February 2009.
This dataset contains measurements of the following parameters over the globe:
Aerosol optical thickness taken at 550nm and 870nm,
Earth surface albedo taken at 550nm, 670nm, 870nm, and 1600nm.
Upwelling spectral radiance in the air (measured reflectance) at 550nm, 670nm, 870nm, 1600nm, and 3700nm.
Brightness temperature taken at 11000nm and 12000nm.
Cloud area fraction
Aerosol speciation (from a selection of 5 pre-defined types:maritime, continental, desert, urban/polluted and biomass burning).
