Terra (MODIS) – aerosol properties

Available properties: aerosol type, aerosol optical thickness, mass distribution, mass concentration, optical properties and radiative properties.

The full list of available parameters is given below. For each parameter there are additional characteristics separated by semicolon (;). The characteristics apply to a single cell of regular latitude-longitude grid with spatial resolution of 1°×1°.
