Load observed global stratospheric aerosol optical depth time series.

  • time (np.ndarray) – 1d array of years the AOD time series is required for

  • dir_obs (str) – pathway to observations


aod_obs (np.ndarray) – 1d array of observed global stratospheric AOD time series


  • Assumption: time covers max full extend historical period (i.e., 1850 - 2014 for cimp6, 1850 - 2005 for cmip5)

  • potentially TODO: check if want to integrate it into load_obs() fct somehow, but likely not as it is quite different from other obs
