Paper Abstract

The estimates of the “effective” height of the homogeneous aerosol atmosphere in wide wavelength range (0.44 to 3.9 μm) are obtained for the first time on the basis of simultaneous measurements of the spectral transparency of the atmosphere on near-ground long path and in the atmospheric column. This parameter qualitatively characterizes the height of the mixing layer for particles of different size. The spectral aerosol extinction coefficients in the near-ground layer of α(λ) and the optical thickness of the atmosphere τ(λ) were measured. The effective height of the homogeneous atmosphere was defined as H0(λ)=τ(λ)/α(λ).
