Bocci, E, Bonafoni, S, Basili, P, Biondi, R, Arino, O (2009). Analysis of aerosol optical depth retrieved by MODIS and MERIS and comparison with photometer data. RIVISTA ITALIANA DI TELERILEVAMENTO, 41(1), 5-10.

Abstract
In this work a validation of aerosol optical depth (AOD) values provided by two different satellite sensors (MODIS and MERIS) is proposed. A comparison between satellite and ground-based AERONET data is carried out to verify the reliability of spaceborne instruments. Finally the behaviour of AOD is analyzed monitoring particular events such as desert dust transport occurred on the 9(th) of October 2004 over the Mediterranean.
