Wilson, DI, Piketh, SJ, Smirnov, A, Holben, BN, Kuyper, B (2010). Aerosol optical properties over the South Atlantic and Southern Ocean during the 140th cruise of the M/V SA Agulhas. ATMOSPHERIC RESEARCH, 98(4-Feb), 285-296.

Abstract
The research analysed the aerosol optical properties of the South Atlantic and Southern Ocean regions during the South African National Antarctic Expedition 2007/2008 (SANAE 47) take-over cruise on board the MN S.A. Agulhas Very low aerosol optical thickness values were obtained for the Antarctic Coastal region with a mean AOT 500 nm of 003 and a mean Angstrom exponent of 1 77 The South Atlantic region showed a mean AOT 500 nm of 006 and a mean Angstrom exponent of 0 69 AOT values for the South African coastal region were similar to those in the South Atlantic and had a mean AOT 500 nm of 007 and a mean Angstrom exponent of 076 A discrepancy exists between the MODIS TERRA and AQUA aerosol product and the acquired dataset using the Microtops II Sunphotometer (c) 2010 Elsevier BV All rights reserved
