Short summary
Tamanrasset, in the heart of the Sahara, is a key site for aerosol research. The analysis of more than 2 years (2006-2009) of AERONET and KCICLO-corrected sun photometer measurements shows that atmospheric aerosols at Tamanrasset are modulated by the Convective Boundary Layer leading to pure Saharan dust conditions (April-September) and very clear sky conditions (November-February). Dust potential sources and anthropogenic fine aerosols arriving at Tamanrasset are also identified.
