Summary
Abstract: Global Annual PM2.5 Grids from MODIS and MISR Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) data sets represent a series of annual average grids (2001-2010) of fine particulate matter (solid particles and liquid droplets) that were derived from MODIS and MISR AOD satellite data. Together the grids provide a continuous surface of concentrations in micrograms per cubic meter of particulate matter of 2.5 micrometers ... View entire text

Purpose: To provide a continuous surface of concentrations (micrograms per cubic meter) of particulate matter of 2.5 micrometers or smaller (PM2.5) for health and environmental research.
