Short summary
The aerosols sources (volcanoes, mineral dust, wildfires, pollution) in continental Portugal were studied using ground and satellite measurements. The influence of the each source changes with the season and environment. Concerning the effect that aerosols have over the local climate variations change, the strongest influence was found for the less urbanized site and for the summer months. It consists in dependence of the maximum daily temperature variations on the absorbing aerosol content.
