RETRIEVAL OF AEROSOL OPTICAL DEPTH FROM MODIS DATA AT 500 M RESOLUTION COMPARED WITH GROUND MEASUREMENT IN THE STATE OF INDIANA

By Fahed Alhaj Mohamad

Abstract

Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)Objective: "The purpose of this research is: Study the use of Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data in retrieving the aerosol optical depth (AOD) over Indiana State at high resolution of 500 meters. Examine the potential of using the resulted AOD data as an indicator of particulate air pollution by comparing the satellite derived AOD data with the ground measurements (provided from the continuous air monitors available over the study area). If an association should be found, AOD data would be used to map particulate matter (PM) concentration. Assess current and future ambient concentrations of air pollutants in the State of Indiana using the AOD.
