Entry Title: MISR L2 Aerosol Product subset for the C-MARE Region V002
Entry ID: CMRMIAAE_2
CMRMIAAE_2 is the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) Level 2 Aerosol Product subset for the C-MARE Region version 2. It contains aerosol optical depth, ancillary meteorological data, and related parameters on a 17.6 km grid for the CMARE_2004 theme. To study the magnitude and natural variability in space and time of sunlight and cloud interactions with aerosols in the earth's atmosphere and to determine their effect on climate; to improve knowledge of sources, sinks and regional budgets of aerosols; and to provide atmospheric correction inputs for surface imaging data acquired by MISR and other instruments that are simultaneously viewing the same portion of the Earth, for the purpose of making better quantitative estimates of surface reflectance.
