Paper Abstract

During recent decade, Microtops and SPM portable sun photometers are used to perform annual measurements of aerosol optical depth (AOD) and water vapor content of the atmosphere over Atlantic Ocean along the route of the Russian Antarctic expeditions (RAE). The data accumulation has made it possible to analyze the specific features of the spatial distribution of spectral AOD of the atmosphere along eastern RAE route and identify six basic regions (latitudinal zones). The statistical characteristics of AOD in the identified oceanic regions in winter and spring periods are discussed. The estimates of finely and coarsely dispersed AOD components in different regions, as well as the interannual atmospheric AOD variations, are presented.
