Global Imager (GLI) is the moderate spatial resolution imager which has 36 channels from near UV to infrared. It observed cloud and aerosol properties for global scale. One of the features of the GLI is that it has 380 nm channel in near UV region. Using this channel in RGB composite image, the aerosols spread over the land area clearly identified. The global distributions and properties of aerosols and clouds were retrieved as the standard analyses of the GLI atmospheric project. These results will be used for validating climate modes, that predict future climate on the Earth.
