Description

In conjunction with the AERONET (AErosol RObotic NETwork) participation in SAFARI 2000, the USDA Forest Service deployed handheld hazemeters in western Zambia from mid-June to late September 2000. Thirty-eight hazemeters were deployed within a 900 km x 900 km region in western Zambia to verify and study the aerosol properties in MODIS data. The handheld measurements were compared with satellite measurements. The hazemeter data were used to examine the effects of inhomogeneous atmosphere on MODIS aerosol product validation and to investigate the dependency of MODIS aerosol measurements on look angle and ground vegetation.
