Aerosol and cloud optical properties are studied using data from ground-based and ship-borne sky radiometer measurements in the world. We are seeking in this data information on the aerosol optical characteristics with respect to their temporal and spatial variability and validation of Satellite and numerical models. The aerosol optical thickness has clear temporal and spatial variability at six sites in Japan. Comparisons between aerosol optical thickness at 0.5 μm retrieved with a sky radiometer and SPRINTAS at six Japan sites. Model of all sky AOT500 is good correlation. But, model of clear sky AOT500C is not good correlation. We will confirm the trends of aerosol climatology and help explain the reason.
