Aerosol optical properties based on ground observation data in Arctic Alaska (1998-2020)

Aerosol optical properties based on ground observation data in Arctic Alaska (1998-2020)

The aerosol optical thickness data of the Arctic Alaska station is formed based on the observation data products of the US Department of Energy's atmospheric radiation observation program at the Arctic Alaska station. The data coverage time is from 1998 to 2020, the time resolution is hourly, the coverage site is the Arctic Alaska station, and the longitude and latitude coordinates are (71 ° 19 ′ 22.8 ″ N, 156 ° 36 ′ 32.4 ″ W). The observation data is obtained from the inversion of the radiation data observed by MFRSR instrument. The optical characteristic variable is aerosol optical thickness, and the observation inversion error range is about 15%. The data format is nc format.

File naming and required software

The data is stored in hdf format. The file is in a folder every month. The file name is "Alaska. AOD. yyyymm. hdf", where yyyy represents the year and mm represents the month
