Paper Abstract

An array of spectral aerosol extinction coefficients is calculated from measurements of the spectral transparency of the atmosphere on a 1 km long horizontal path in 10 regions of the wavelength range 0.5 – 4 μm. An array of angular dependences of the aerosol scattering coefficients in the angular range 1.2 – 15° is obtained by means of an aureole photometer with closed scattering volume. Measurements were carried out under conditions of smoky atmosphere. Inverse problem was solved for two empirical data arrays obtained synchronously (200 realizations) and the aerosol particle cross section size distributions were calculated. It is shown that the results of two experiments are in quite good agreement in the particle size range from 0.18 to 1.8 μm. Objective. Determination of the aerosol particle size range, in which the results of aerosol monitoring by two instrumentation complexes are most representative. Method for solving the problem. The inverse problem was solved for two empirical data arrays: a) spectral aerosol extinction coefficients βext(λ) in the wavelength range 0.5 – 3.9 μm; b) angular dependences of the aerosol scattering coefficients βsct(φ) in the angular range Φ = 1.2 – 15° at the wavelength of 650 nm. The arrays βext(λ) and βsct(φ) were obtained in synchronous measurements by means of two independent instrumentation complexes [1,2]. In order to obtain the aerosol particle cross-section size distribution dS/dr, the inverse problem was solved using the algorithms [3-5]. The spectral dependence of the optical constants of aerosol particles was determined from the empirical data [6, 7]. Finally, two arrays of distributions dS/dr corresponding to the initial experiments data βext(λ) and βsct(φ) were calculated.
