Official Description

The AERONET (AErosol RObotic NETwork) is a network of ground-based Sun photometers that measure atmospheric aerosol properties. The measurement system is a solar-powered CIMEL Electronique 318A spectral radiometer that measures Sun and sky radiances at a number of fixed wavelengths within the VNIR spectrum.
