Paper Abstract

Model estimates of the effective heights of the atmosphere for the aerosol extinction coefficients and their components in the range 1.07 to 12 μm, where there are no experimental data, are obtained on the basis of simultaneous measurements of the atmospheric trasparency on horizontal and slant paths [13]. It is shown that the mean value of the effective height of the atmosphere for the aerosol extinction coefficient in the wavelength range 0.44 to 12 μm decreases from 1km in visible range to 0.2-0.3km in the range of "transparency window" of the atmosphere 8-12 μm.
