Short summary
A solar radiation measurement campaign was performed in the south-eastern village of Marsaxlokk (35º 50' N; 14º 33' E; 10 m a.s.l.), Malta, between 15 May and 15 October 2012. Erythemal solar radiation (UVER), horizontal global and diffuse components were recorded. Aerosols effects on solar irradiances are evaluated using the Aerosol Modification factor (AMF). Results indicate a greater aerosol effect on UVER than on global solar irradiance. Several dust event trajectories are identified.
