Climate Change Initiative
The first progress meeting will comprise of:

- cloud masking for aerosol retrieval workshop (day 1 15-18)
- aerosol retrieval uncertainties workshop (day 2, 9-16)
11th Aerosol_cci progress meeting (29+30 October 2013)
Within preparation of the Cliamte Assessment Report users in the Climate Research Group of Aerosol_cci evaluated the first avaialble AATSR AOD time series against AERONET and compared it to MODIS. The analysis proves the good quality of this multi-annual dataset.
The images attached show the global AATSR time series and the scoring difference for the Swansea AATSR product between the start and the end of the project
Next CCI colocation meeting of all projects in the Climate Change Initiative will be held in Frascati 4-6 February 2014.
Main purpose will be to discuss achievements and lessons learned from Phase 1 (2010-2013) and plans for closer collaboration between the proejcts in Phase 2 (2014-2016), to achieve progress on consistency of ECV products and their wider use (e.g. in IPCC AR6)
