Short summary
We present a climatological analysis of Australian aerosol based on 22 sun photometer stations operated by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO/AeroSpan. A spectral analysis shows the dominance of the annual cycle and its second and third harmonics in the time series. Classification shows three primary Australian aerosol regimes: temperate, arid, and tropical. Further analysis quantifies trends and reveals remarkable long-range coherence in the aerosol cycle across the continent.
