SDS-WAS uses AERONET version 3 products for forecast evaluation

In 2015, the Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) evolved to the use of a new set of processing algorithms (AERONET version 3). The primary trigger for release of version 3 lies with cloud screening of the direct sun observations. After checking that dust optical depth derived from model simulations present better spatio-temporal correlation with AERONET v 3 retrievals than with those of the previous version (Basart, 2017), this SDS-WAS Regional Center begins to use the new version of AERONET products for its forecast evaluation. For 2017, results obtained with the two versions are available.
