VIIRS/SNPP Deep Blue Level 3 monthly aerosol data, 1 degree x1 degree grid

The VIIRS/SNPP Deep Blue Level 3 monthly aerosol data, 1x1 degree grid, Short-name AERDB_M3_VIIRS_SNPP product provides satellite-derived measurements of Aerosol Optical Thickness (AOT) and their properties over land and ocean as gridded aggregates, on a monthly basis, globally. This monthly aggregated product is derived from the Collection-1.1 (C1.1) daily L3 gridded products (AERDB_D3_VIIRS_SNPP), and is provided in a 1degree x 1 degree horizontal resolution grid. Arithmetic mean values from the daily L3 gridded products also provide the basis to derive a complement of statistics for the monthly aggregated products. To exclude poorly sampled grid elements, the algorithm requires at least 3 valid days’ worth of monthly data to populate the monthly grid element. This monthly product collection’s record starts from March 1st 2012.
