The estimation of microphysical parameters of pollution (effective radius and complex refractive index) from optical aerosol parameters entails a complex problem. In previous work based on machine learning techniques, Artificial Neural Networks have been used to solve this problem. In this paper, the use of a classification and regression solution based on the k-Nearest Neighbor algorithm is proposed. Results show that this contribution achieves better results in terms of accuracy than the previous work.
