Abstract

The dual view of the Advanced Along Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) allows for the accurate retrieval of aerosol properties over land. One of the research applications is a study on the influence of new particle formation on the aerosol optical properties. This study is undertaken over Finland, where in general the AOD is often very low and new particle formation events occur frequently. In situ ground based data on aerosol optical properties are used to validate the model results , as well as the sun photometer data from the FPR network in Finland
