Model mean aerosol optical depth error, susceptibility errors, and the climatology of observational aerosol optical depth as a function of detection threshold scale factor. The a AOD and susceptibility errors relative to CAM5_orb, b global GOCAP AOD, c GOCAP AOD over ocean, and d GOCAP AOD over land, are shown. Shaded area represents the range of observational estimates from other satellites including the MODIS Collection 635, 72, the Multi-angle Imaging Spectroradiometer (MISR) Version 473,74,75, the sea-viewing wide field-of-view sensor (SeaWIFS) Version 476,77,78, the operational CALIPSO Version 3.00 Level 3 (cloud-free)16, 79, and the Satellite-AERONET composite80. Crosses denote the CALIPSO Version 3.00 Level 3 cloud-free AOD during night time
