Abstract
In this work we study the complete evolution of an episode of Saharan dust invasion over Canary Island. To describe adequately this phenomena two magnitudes are calculated from NOAA-AVHRR satellite data: aerosols optical depth (AOD) in the channel 1 and the ratio channel 1-channel 2 (R12) which gives us rough information about the aerosols size distribution. The aerosols optical depth, calculated to 500 nm with a ground based sunphotometer, situated above the inversion layer is used too.
