Paper Abstract

The most variable components of the atmosphere, such as aerosol, water vapor and ozone, play important role in the radiative processes. The principal nethod for determining their total content is solar spectrophotometry of the atmosphere (the method of transparency). The following solar photometers can be noted among the modern tools for monitoring of the spectral transparency: PFR (http://www.pmodwrc.ch), MS-120 (http://www.eco.co.jp) and SPUV-6 (http://www.yesinc.com). The AERONET network (http://aeronet.gsfc.nasa.gov) based on the CE-318 (www.cimel.fr) sun photometers in most extent satisfies the requirements of uniformity of measurements and global cover. The network monitoring of only ozone total content is carried out in Russia is the regime of "manual" readings, but observations of AOT was stopped more than 10 years ago.1 To remove this disadvantage, the work on creation of multiwavelength solar photometers and developmnet of the algorithms for automation of measurements is carried out in IAO SB RAS. The last version of the photometer destined to network observations is considered in this paper.
