AVHRR Aerosol Optical Depth [Coakley]


This dataset contains daily NOAA-14 AVHRR 4-km Global Area Coverage (GAC) measurements that were collected for January-March 1996-2000. Analyses were performed for ascending daytime passes in the INDOEX region: 30S to 30N and 50E to 110E. The data were analyzed on a 60 by 60 1 degree latitude-longitude grid to produce daily, weekly, and monthly composites of data for the INDOEX region.
