Abstract: Atmospheric aerosol is an important component of the atmosphere, aerosol optical depth is an important parameter of atmospheric aerosol, and Shennongjia area is an important forest ecosystem and aerosol research hotspot. National Field Station for Forest Ecosystem in Shennongjia, Hubei (Shennongjia Station) is located in Shennongjia area. Shennongjia Station monitored aerosol optical depth for a long time. This dataset collects the aerosol optical depth data of Shennongjia Station from 2013 to 2018, as well as related weather records. This dataset can be used as a reference for the study of aerosol variation regularity of forest ecosystem in Shennongjia area and the remote sensing inversion and model establishment of aerosol optical depth temporal and spatial dynamics.
