ATSR-2 for AATSR) an additional dataset for the year 2000 is provided. A complete time series is provided for one algorithm for AATSR (Swansea algorithm, version 4.1; 2002 – 2012). Read more »

11th progress meeting: First evaluation of AATSR time series shows good quality

First analysis of AATSR time series

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
