Paper Abstract

Correlation of variations of the aerosol extinction coefficients of optical radiation and the intensity of electric field under haze and smoke conditions is analyzed on the basis of comprehensive field measurements. It is revealed that significant (almost by an order of magnitude) decrease of the intensity of electric field is observed in smoke, when increasing the atmospheric turbidity. It contradicts to the well-known electrooptical relationship and gives the reason to assume that the quantity of charged particles significantly increases in smoke that dramatically changes the manner of electroptical relations. At great number of fires on the Earth, one should take into account this fact in climatic models and to remember it when considering the physical mechanisms of the effect of solar activity on weather and climate.
