Comparison of AOD from Model and Microtops Sun Photometer

Comparison of modeled aerosol optical depth (green line) and measured optical depth (red crosses) at the Kaashidhoo Climate Observatory (4.97 N, 73.47E) during the INDOEX Intensive Field Phase in 1999. The measured optical depths are courtesy of Ramanathan and Satheesh (1999, ms in preparation).
