In this work a validation of aerosol optical depth (AOD) values provided by two different satellite sensors (MODIS and MERIS) is proposed. A comparison between satellite and ground-based AERONET data is carried out to verify the reliability of spaceborne instruments.

Abstract

In this work a validation of aerosol optical depth (AOD) values provided by two different satellite sensors (MODIS and MERIS) is proposed. A comparison between satellite and ground-based AERONET data is carried out to verify the reliability of spaceborne instruments. Finally the behaviour of AOD is analyzed monitoring particular events such as desert dust transport occurred on the 9th of October 2004 over the Mediterranean.
