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 aerosol products from ATSR-2, using the ADV algorithm, version 2.30. Both daily and monthly gridded products are available

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