This data set contains monthly mean surface PM2.5 concentrations for Germany and parts of the surrounding countries. PM2.5 surface concentrations are derived from Aqua/MODIS and Sentinel-3A/SLSTR AOD data and provided as merged MODIS/SLSTR product. The data is generated by DLR and provided in the framework of the mFUND-Project "S-VELD". The surface PM2.5 data are concentrations with the unit "µg/m3". The satellites Aqua (NASA) and Sentinel-3 (Copernicus) observe Germany on a daily basis. PM2.5 concentrations were derived on a daily basis from the two AOD products separately and combined to a merged MODIS/SLSR surface PM2.5 product. The data within each month are averaged and gridded onto a regular UTM grid. As AOD measurements are strongly depending on cloud conditions, the spatial coverage can be limited, especially in the winter months.
