Description du jeu de données
RésuméSun photometer measurements of the direct (collimated) solar radiation provide information to calculate the columnar aerosol optical depth (AOD). AOD can be used to compute columnar water vapor (Precipitable Water) and estimate the aerosol size using the Angstrom parameter relationship. Two data versions (Versions 1 and 2) and three quality levels (Levels 1.0, 1.5, 2.0) exist for each product. While Levels 1.0 and 1.5 are provided in near real-time, the 12-month or longer delay (due to final calibration and manual inspection) ensures that the highest quality data can be found in Version 2, Level 2.0 data products. Version 2 AOD processing now includes fine and coarse mode AOD as well as fine mode fraction.

Information sur l'utilisation des données
Conditions d'utilisation des donnéesThe public domain data you are about to download are contributed by the International AERONET Federation. Each site has a Principal Investigator(s) (PI) , responsible for deployment, maintenance and data collection. The PI has priority use of the data collected at the site. The PI is entitled to be informed of any other use of that site data. Recommended guidelines for data use and publication: Although journal paper authorship and acknowledgement is the domain of the senior author and no policy is universally applicable, the AERONET contributors ask that every practical attempt be made to honor the following general guidelines. Using AERONET data: Please consult with the PI(s) of the data to be used. Publishing AERONET data from a 'few' sites: Please consider authorship for the PI(s) and/or the following acknowledgement: We thank the (Project/PI) for (its/theirs) effort in establishing and maintaining (site name(s)) sites. Publishing data from 'many' sites: A general acknowledgement is typically sufficient and may read: We thank the (PI investigators) and their staff for establishing and maintaining the (#)sites used in this investigation. However if the AERONET data are a principal component of the paper then co-authorship to PI's should be offered.
