5] from LFS for 1997-2006 by combining outputs from a chemical transport model with satellite-based observations of aerosol optical depth.
Aerosols are mostly characterized by the aerosol optical depth (AOD), which is related to Angstrom's turbidity coefficient [beta] and the wavelength exponent [alpha] through: [AOD.
We agree that integration of satellite-based aerosol optical depth (AOD) with a chemical transport model (CTM) is valuable to develop estimates of air quality.
5] concentrations using total-column aerosol optical depth (AOD) from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and Multiangle Imaging Spectroradiometer (MISR) satellite instruments and coincident aerosol vertical profiles from the GEOS-Chem global chemical transport model.

We hope this exchange will highlight some of the key issues in using aerosol optical depth (AOD) for air quality purposes, in particular with regard to our focus on epidemiologic use.
