Atmospheric aerosols are fundamental building blocks for atmospheric chemistry and composition. These minute dust and smoke particles impact the Earth's radiation budget and hydrological cycles directly or indirectly with clouds. With increasing earth observations and developments in satellite remote sensing, there is a growing suite of high resolution spatial and temporal operational applications possible from mining aerosol-cloud-radiation datasets. Research and developments from mining related mesocale and hourly spatiotemporal datasets of NASA, European Space Agency, ECMWF, and Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency with bias statistics against regional ground observations are discussed focusing on technology transfer for solar energy and precision agriculture sectors.
