Short summary
This study outlines a new methodology for assessing air pollution from space using observations from Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR). Both air pollution amounts – as well as the uncertainties associated with space observations – are simultaneously and consistently obtained from MISR measurements over oceans. The new products have superior quality to the previous versions and will benefit the air pollution community.
