Abstract
More than 2 years of columnar atmospheric aerosol measurements (2006-2009) at the Tamanrasset site (22.79 degrees N, 5.53 degrees E, 1377 ma.s.l.), in the heart of the Sahara, are analysed. Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) level 2.0 data were used. The KCICLO (K is the name of a constant and ciclo means cycle in Spanish) method was applied to a part of the level 1.5 data series to improve the quality of the results. The annual variability of aerosol optical depth (AOD) and Angstrom exponent (AE...
