What's differents between AEROSOL and WIND?? THANK'S
An aerosol is the suspension of small solid particles or liquid droplets in the atmosphere.
Wind is the displacement of the air due to pressure differences.
So you can have a strong wind with a small aerosol content or a high content of aerosol with a light wind. Consequently there is no connection between wind and aerosol.

Why are winds ( vectors moving on the screen) in the option Aerosols , quite different from vectors in Winds or others options, at the same time in forecast ?
PM2.5 or NOx , for instance, have the same winds and vectors on the screen

Hmm! maybe is a bug here!
Developers must see that ...
at the same forecast time (e.g. Tue 16/09Z)
For "wind": particles animation show a circular motion
over location A (Fethyie) and Northerly winds over B (Rodos)
while for "aerosol" the circular motion is located over B.
It seems that the wind direction in Aerosol layer is similar to the wind direction at 850hPa (~1500m).
The Ozone layer shows also a wind different from the wind at surface. It seems similar to the wind direction at 150hPa (~13500m).
I have not checked everywhere and I don’t know why there are such particularities.
