In order to facilitate scientific applications of aerosol products from geostationary satellite such as Himawari-8 (H-8), the H-8 Level 3 version 030 aerosol data sets from coastal areas were evaluated in this work. Level 2.0 aerosol products from January 2017 to December 2017 collected from 10 Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) sites, located in the offshore areas of the South China Sea and the Taiwan Strait, were selected for comparisons. The results showed that the H-8 aerosol product is mostly underestimated when aerosol optical thickness (AOT) is larger then 0.2, while overestimated when AOT is less than 0.2. And that the trends shown by H-8 AOT are basically consistent with the ground observations from AERONET.
