SEAC 4 RS Ground and Ship Measurements January 2012. NCAR. http://espo.nasa.gov/missions/seac4rs/. Surface Network Overview. Because of metrological complexity & political sensitivities in SE Asia, data from a ground network is required to adequately cover the region.
Radiation Enhanced Site
Pre-ex MPLNET Lidar
Intensive ALS Lidar
Other meas. (GAW, SKYNET)
COAMPS/FLAMBE surface smoke concentration-August 2007
SE Asia Ground Network
MPLnet Intensive lidar
Other aerosol measurements
All sites co-located
✗ International agreement not final
* Hong Kong group operates their own ALS lidar. They are not part of MPLNET due to current ban on bi-lateral NASA-China interactions.

Component of AERONET
MAN coverage-Oct 06 to Jan 2012
In the last several years data acquisition was extended to the areas that previously had very little or no coverage at all
