The Advanced Himawari Imager (AHI), on board the Japanese Himawari-8 geostationary weather satellite, provides an opportunity to observe the diurnal changes in aerosol properties over the Asia-Pacific region. Using the hourly observation data from AHI, a new dark target algorithm was preliminarily proposed to retrieve the aerosol optical depth (AOD) at 1 km and 5 km resolutions over mainland China. The comparison and validation results show that our AHI AOD data demonstrate good agreement with the ground-based and satellite AOD measurements (AERONET AOD, MODIS DT AOD and MODIS DB AOD), but with a slight overestimation. Generally, the preliminary AHI AOD data well reflects the spatial and temporal variation characteristics of aerosol properties in China. View Paper here.
