Aerosol optical properties based on ground observation data in Arctic Alaska (1998-2016)


The aerosol optical thickness data of the Arctic Alaska station is based on the observation data products of the atmospheric radiation observation plan of the U.S. Department of energy at the Arctic Alaska station. The data coverage time is from 1998 to 2016, and the time resolution is hour by hour. The coverage site is the Arctic Alaska station, with the longitude and latitude coordinates of (71 ° 19 ′ 22.8 ″ n, 156 ° 36 ′ 32.4 ″ w). The source of the observed data is retrieved from the radiation data observed by mfrsr instrument. The optical characteristic variable is aerosol optical thickness, and the error range of the observed inversion is about 15%. The data format is NC format.


Data file naming and use method

File name: the data is stored in grid NC format, and the file is a folder every year. The file name is "nsamfrasraod1michc1.yyyy MM DD", where yyyy represents the year, mm represents the month, DD represents the date, for example, nsamfrasraod1michc1.c1.19980417.000000 represents the aerosol optical thickness data on April 17, 1998.
Data reading mode: open reading with ArcGIS software or program.
