Data of aerosol types in the three polar region V2.0 (2006-2021)

Data of aerosol types in the three polar region V2.0 (2006-2021)

The triple pole aerosol type data product is an aerosol type result obtained through a series of data pre-processing, quality control, statistical analysis and comparative analysis processes by comprehensively using MEERA 2 assimilation data and active satellite CALIPSO products. The key of the aerosol type fusion algorithm is to judge the aerosol type of CALIPSO. During the data fusion of aerosol type, the final aerosol type data (12 types in total) and quality control results in the three polar regions are obtained according to the types and quality control of CALIPSO aerosol types and referring to MERRA 2 aerosol types. The data product fully considers the vertical and spatial distribution of aerosols, and has a high spatial resolution (0.625 ° × 0.5 °) and time resolution (month).

File naming and required software

The aerosol type data is saved in hdf format and named according to the data acquisition time. The file name is AerosolType-yyymm.hdf, where yyyy represents the year and mm represents the month
