Paper Abstract

A model is developed to calculate the vertical variation of aerosol extinction coefficients throughout the marine atmospheric boundary layer. It is a mixture of empirical and physical models, formulated to describe the often observed non-uniform, but also non-logarithmic, profiles. The physical model is based on the dynamical processes affecting the production, mixing, deposition and size of the aerosol within the marine atmosphere. A status report is presented including a critical evaluation.
