The Sentinel-5P Aerosol Optical Thickness (AOT) product was designed to monitor the daily global spatial distribution of aerosols in the Earth’s atmosphere. Together with the S5P Aerosol Index and S5P Aerosol Layer Height product it constitutes the suite of global aerosol products that can be used to monitor and analyse the spatial and temporal distribution of naturally and anthropogenically emitted aerosols such desert dust plumes, volcanic ash, sea salt, industrial pollution, etc.
The dataset does not provide a full timeline and products for several orbits are known to be missing. Information about known acquisition gaps in the data can be found on the Mission Status webpage of Sentinel-5P.
Available product files can be selected and downloaded using the SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog (STAC) browser interface.
This service is provided as part of the Sentinel-5P Product Algorithm Laboratory (S5P-PAL) and contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data processed by S[&]T.
