Paper Abstract

This paper presents comparisons between aerosols measurements and aerosols in Lowtran7. Desert aerosols are natural aerosols that can be found throughout the atmosphere; they are a mixture of different kinds of materials. The model used in Lowtran7 separates the desert aerosol into its three major components: carbonaceous particles, pure quartz and quartz contaminated with a small amount of hematite. Recent measurements have been carried out for three samples of desert aerosols from the Middle East and give prominence to a complex composition of the sands. Thanks to an accurate analysis, we present features of the sands and compare them with values introduced in Lowtran7 desert aerosol model.
