Abstract

Environmental security is totally relegated in countries of West Africa. The monitoring of the aerosols loading over Bamako was the aim of this study. The outcome of our finding has salient links to food security, aviation and communication industry, thermal comfort and climate system of Bamako and Mali. Bamako is located on longitude 12.65 ºN and latitude 8 ºW. Fifteen years data was obtained from the multiangled spectro-reflectometry (MISR). The aerosol loading was monitored using analytical and statistical techniques. The outcome is expected to enrich policy making in the nation of Mali.
