Short summary
Data from two instruments (MODIS and MISR) on board the Terra satellite were compared with seven AERONET ground-based stations located in the Middle East and North Africa. The goal was to test which space-borne instrument can better represent ground data over different geographic locations. Comparing satellites’ retrievals with corresponding AERONET measurements shows that space-borne data retrieval accuracy can be affected by landscape and topology.
