Abstract

The measurements of aerosol optical thickness (AOT) and number density at Teide, Tenerife and Agaete, Gran Canaria were discussed. The Microtops II ozone-monitor sunphotometer was used to measure aerosol optical depths. The Climet 500 Laser Particle Counter (LPC) was used to measure the number densities at different size cuts. The backward trajectories of the air masses for each of the locations were computed. The expected trend of a sharp decrease in the aerosol optical thickness with altitude was observed.
