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 3 daily and monthly gridded aerosol products from the ATSR-2 instrument on the ENVISAT satellite, derived using the ORAC algorithm, version 4.01. The data covers the period from 1995 - 2003.

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