NOAA Global Monitoring Division:
The goals of this regional-scale monitoring program are to characterize means, variability, and trends of climate-forcing properties of different types of aerosols, and to understand the factors that control these properties. The Aerosol group within the Global Monitoring Divison's measurements also provide ground-truth for satellite measurements and global models, as well as key aerosol parameters for global-scale models.
