Short summary
The Indonesian fire and smoke event of 2015 was an extreme episode that affected public health and caused severe economic and environmental damage. We managed to retrieve data over very thick smoke plumes and produce a lot more high aerosol loading data that were previously missed by other satellite products. These results will benefit varieties of downstream research that use the satellite aerosol data and will influence the future development of the global satellite aerosol algorithm.
