GACP Datasets

Holben Dataset

I would like to inform the Science Team members that the ground based AERONET data archive of spectral AOD and particle size distribution retrievals are available to the science team members through the AERONET homepage:

The time period of coverage begins in 1992 and continues through the present.

The sites represent a good distribution of latitudes and aerosol types, the number varies according to season and the program that sponsored the measurements. Some sites are continuous.

The data base should remain in the AERONET archive as it is designed for public access. This is a contributed data set. I ask that the rules of data use be followed as indicated in the homepage.
