Summary
Abstract: The AERONET (AErosol RObotic NETwork) is an optical ground based
aerosol monitoring network and data archive supported by NASA's Earth
Observing System and expanded by federation with many non-NASA
institutions. AERONET is a major contributor to the SAFARI 2000
campaign.

Unscreened (Level 1.0) and cloud filtered (Level 1.5) real-time
data are available online as are Level 2.0 quality assured data
