Abstract

Mostly, aerosol properties are poorly understood because the aerosol properties are very sparse. The first workshop on the determination of atmospheric aerosol properties over land using satellite measurements is convened in Bremen, Germany. In this workshop, the topics of discussions included a variety of satellite aerosol optical thickness retrieval methods, the description of modern satellite instrumentation, and the information content of satellite measurements with respect to the aerosol properties retrieval from spaceborne observations. The presentations are mostly concerned with the aerosol optical thickness retrieval over land.
