Atmospheric aerosol particles play an important role in the Earth’s radiation balance. They are considered one of the largest uncertainties in today’s climate modelling. To a large extent, these uncertainties are caused by the lack of aerosol data on a global scale. Due to the short lifetimes of aerosols in the troposphere (hours to a week), and the many different sources with different spatial extents and emissions, the aerosol is highly variable in both space and time. Satellite remote sensing only can provide the global coverage and the spatial and temporal resolution to measure the inhomogeneous aerosol fields.
