Paper Abstract

To study the relationship between Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) and concentration of PM2.5(Particulate Matter) basing on CALIPSO (Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation) data, 51 samples among the CALIPSO Level 2 aerosol profile data of local region from January to April 2014 are selected. After screening these 51 samples under the decided conditions, such as system stability and the type of the materials, the AODs of the samples are calculated. Then a linear regression model is constructed through Matlab software, in which AOD is independent variable and PM2.5 is dependent variable. All the data are fit by the selected five functions: linear, logarithmic, exponential, power, and quadratic. Experimental results show that the value of correlation coefficient of the quadratic equation model is the best one among the functions. So it is feasible to monitor the concentration of PM2.5 using the AOD calculated from CALIPSO Level 2 data.
