Paper Abstract

The spatial and temporal variations in regional aerosol optical thickness (AOT) over China during 2013 were investigated in this study using Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) aerosol intermediate product (IP) data obtained from the NOAA CLASS. It is found that high level AOT in China mainly occurs in the spring and summer. The study compared the aerosols in the economically developed eastern China to those in the western region; urban areas versus rural areas; inland versus coastal cities. Further investigation was also performed to validate VIIRS derived AOT data and aerosol type with in situ ground measurements.
