Abstract
An analysis of aerosols optical parameters is made using the sun photometer measurements taken at CEILAP in 2000. The sun photometer deployed in the Buenos Aires suburb is part of AERONET. Using the present data set, time series of key optical parameters such as the optical depth at 500 nm and Angstrom coefficient of the wavelength scaling law are derived. Clustering the observations by mean of a statistical analysis we can infer the pollution episodes in the Buenos Aires area. They can be either of local or regional origins, depending on the meteorological conditions prevailing over central Argentina.
