Paper Abstract

The paper is devoted to the application of the newly developed aerosol retrieval algorithm to a study of the aerosol optical thickness(AOT) spatial distributions for a number of hazard situations including fires and dust outbreaks. In particular we find that the spectral slope of the optical thickness decreases with the distance from a fire. This is owing to the aerosol aging mechanism. Also we discuss possible reasons for the spectral cloud optical thickness anomalous behaviour in the short-wave region.
