|The authors have addressed all of my suggestions. There is only one minor suggestion that is not well answered. |
Yes, I agree that analysis of the AERONET error is beyond the scope of this study, and the authors explained that in the response. However, I think the retrieval errors may be well studied by other studies, and the authors may just slightly discusses the uncertainties in the manuscript based on literature review. This will certainly help to better understand the comparison, because the differences between this study and AERONET are not merely from the simulations. Again, as I mentioned, this is minor, and the authors can decide whether add or not on their own.
