Paper Abstract

This work is devoted to the study of solar light that experiences single and multiple scattering in the atmosphere at the twilight time. The work is based on polarimetric observations of the twilight sky that were conducted in 1997 and 2000 for different color bands. Basing on the results of observations, the contribution of single-scattered light depending on the wavelength for the light stage of twilight is obtained. The correlation of color and polarization properties of the twilight sky is investigated with an account of multiple scattering.
