Abstract: The poster presents the current status of the Maritime Aerosol Network (MAN) as a component of AERONET. The MAN started collecting aerosol optical data in various regions of the World Ocean in November 2006 and has completed over 70 cruises, with many cruises ongoing and planned. The aerosol optical depth data collection will provide the international scientific community with the much needed data for the satellite retrieval validation, atmospheric correction and other applications. A public domain web-based archive is essential in the fundamental scientific aspect of aerosol optical studies over the oceans.
