Short summary
Using near-full data records of Terra and Aqua MODIS and MISR data, we have evaluated aerosol optical depth trends over global oceans (MODIS and MISR) and land (MISR). Also, for the first time, shortwave aerosol radiative effect (SWARE) trends are estimated over global oceans with the combined use of observations from MODIS and CERES.
Using near-full data records of Terra and Aqua MODIS and MISR data, we have evaluated aerosol...
