Short summary
The spatial distributions and trends of above-cloud aerosol (ACA) events are studied using seven and a half years of MODIS, OMI, and CALIOP data. The active- (CALIOP) and passive-based (MODIS-OMI) methods have their advantages and caveats, and thus both are used to get a thorough and robust comparison of ACA distribution and climatology. For the first time, baseline above-cloud CALIOP aerosol optical depth and OMI aerosol index thresholds are derived and examined for each sensor.
