Abstract:

 The specific features of the spatiotemporal variations of the atmospheric aerosol optical depth (AOD) in the Asian part of Russia according to multiyear data of satellite (MODIS/TERRA and AQUA) observations are discussed. We single out the regions with quasi-homogeneous distribution of the aerosol turbidity: West, East, North Siberia, Transbaikalia, Primorye, and adjoining seas. The characteristics of the annual AOD behavior are presented in comparison with results of ground-based observations. The common regularities for all regions include the AOD decrease from April to early winter and similar quasibiennial oscillations in the variations of annual values. In addition, the Asian part of Russia is divided into two territories, which differ in the value, character of annual behavior, and in the cross-correlation coefficients of AOD: the first territory encompasses the regions of boreal zone (including Transbaikalia), and the second territory encompasses Primorye with adjoining seas, burdened by the effect of monsoon circulations.
