Paper Abstract

Some new remote sensing methods of aerosol optical properties and their basic principles are described. The methods are the wide-band extinction method for deriving aerosol optical depth from global direct solar radiation detected by pyroheliometer, the method for retrieving aerosol imaginary index from downward diffuse solar radiation, and the method for deriving aerosol optical depths from joint surface visibility and water vapor pressure. These methods are used to determine aerosol optical depths over 12 meteorological observatories in China during 1980-1994, to retrieve aerosol imaginary index over Beijing and Wulumuqi, and to built aerosol optical depth map in China. Some inversion results are analyzed.
