In this paper, the air quality of Kumbo-Cameroon was investigated. Aerosol optical depth (AOD) dataset for fourteen years was obtained from the Multi-angle Imaging Spectro-Radiometer (MISR). The raw dataset was processed and treated. The aerosol loading over the research location was obtained from the AOD datasets. It was observed that the main pollution is from anthropogenic emission and Sahara dust. The current aerosol loading over Kumbo is high and it is gradually reducing by 1.81%, though not significantly. The data presented is essential for ground measurement over the research area.
