Evolution of aerosol optical thickness over Europe during the August 2003 heat wave as seen from CHIMERE model simulations and POLDER data
Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics
This study compares the aerosol optical thickness (AOT) measured at 865 nm by the Polarization and Directionality of the Earth's Reflectances (POLDER) sensor and simulated by the chemistry-transport model CHIMERE during the wide pollution episode that occurred over Europe in the first half of August 2003. The comparison demonstrates the ability of the model to reproduce the main AOT features observed in satellite data, with a general agreement within a factor 2. Although, the observed AOTdoi:10.5194/acp-6-1853-2006 fatcat:fjabx6xmwfdltcjaw3rn5pcxqm
