Paper Abstract

The first band of two landsat5/TM high resolution images are used in an effort to assess spatial distribution of aerosol by structure function method based on the contrast reduction method, and spatial distribution of the same day air visibility was calculated and analyzed in the greater Beijing area in the paper. In addition, a new judgment method of 'optimal distance index' was proposed. Results show that the concentration spatial distribution of aerosols in Beijing can be described semi-quantitatively by the structure function methods. In the end, the causations of the pollution were analyzed and the limitations and improvements need to be done were discussed.
