Polluted cloud tracks detected in MODIS satellite images

How to cite this Dataset

Description

The dataset contains positions and time of occurrence of polluted cloud tracks. These cloud tracks polluted by aerosols have increased cloud droplet number concentrations compared to the nearby unpolluted clouds. The locations of polluted cloud tracks in MODIS satellite images have been hand-logged at various anthropogenic and natural aerosol sources over land and ocean.
