Investigations of MODIS AOD and cloud properties with CERES sensor based net cloud radiative effect and a NOAA HYSPLIT Model over Bangladesh for the period 2001–2016

The present study investigates the spatiotemporal characteristics of aerosol optical depth (AOD), cloud properties, and TOA (Top Of Atmosphere) Net Cloud Radiative Effect (Net CRE) using MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) Terra and CERES (Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System) products over Bangladesh for the period 2001–2016. This study also explores the backward trajectory using a HYSPLIT (Hybrid Single.. Read More


MODIS dark target and deep blue aerosoloptical dept h validation over Bangladesh

This study seeks to examine the aerosol optical depth (AOD) climatology of Bangladesh over the time period 2003-2014 using Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradio meter (MODIS) collection 5.1 level-3 data, and Dark Target (DT) and Deep Blue (DB) methods. The results showed that the DT approach was capable of reconstructing the AOD over the whole of.. Read More
