Short summary
Satellite data from the MISR instrument were used to produce aerosol optical depth (AOD) retrievals at 4.4 km spatial resolution, a factor of 16 improvement relative to the currently operational 17.6 km product. Retrievals were compared with high-spatial-resolution ground-based observations made by AERONET-DRAGON deployments around the globe. It was found that the 4.4 km MISR retrievals performed significantly better than the 17.6 km retrievals in comparisons made at over 100 individual sites.
