The role of aerosol effects on weather and climate has gained attention in the last few decades since they change the radiation balance of earth's atmosphere by reflecting and absorbing solar radiation and reducing the amount of solar radiation reaching the ground. The spatial and vertical distribution of aerosols and their absorptive properties influence local weather and atmospheric circulation patterns, cloud formation and hydrological processes. Therefore, monitoring of aerosols and their properties is critical for agricultural and climate research. By making use of the data from MODIS on AOT, influence of meteorological parameters on AOT and their influence on agriculture in terms of crop yield were observed and analyzed.
