Aerosol optical depth (AOD) and Ångström coefficients over Europe retrieved from satellite data for August 1997 provide information on the spatial variations of these aerosol properties. The AOD results are compared with initial results from model calculations, showing the relative influences of sulphate and nitrate aerosol.
