## AEROCOM-MEDIAN model

This is a brief documentation about the the models used to calculate the median model for the different variables. In principle the goal is to use the following models for the calculation of the median model:

- GOCART
- KYU
- LOA
- LSCE
- MATCH
- MPI_HAM
- PNNL
- UIO_CTM
- UMI
- TM5_B

Please note that since we used a even number of models, we result does NOT provide data of one of the participating models as median model, but the mean of the two models in the middle instead.

Because not all models provide all the variables, we list the models used for the particular variable below.

### Aerosol optical depth at 550 nm (OD550_AER)
