Our research question was: what is the difference in aerosol optical thickness between Leerdam Centrum (urban) and Schoonrewoerd (non-urban) on monday the 27th of march between 1pm and 5pm. Doing this we will find out whether there is a link between aerosol optical thickness and the areas aerosols occur.This is important to find a possible solution for problems like global warming, knowing aerosols have a lot to do with temperature and the weather. This might also help to make weather forecasts more precise and reliable. Furthermore we will use our sub-questions like: what are aerosols, what kinds of aerosols are there, what is an urban area and what is a non-urban area. This is for the sake to understand the subject better and for better understanding of our results of the testing.
To conclude we have compared the results from Leerdam with these from Schoonrewoerd, and remarkable is that there is hardly a difference in Light intensity and so also in AOT. This refutes our hypothesis because we thought there would be a generally big difference.
