Paper Abstract

The monochromatic and color twilight atmosphere images based on the numerical solution of the radiation transfer equations are presented. The twilight atmosphere brightness field calculations are carried out for the wavelength range of 400 - 750 nm. The calculation results are compared with monochromatic brightness values and color characteristics of the twilight aureole of the Earth's atmosphere obtained from the manned spacecraft 'Soyuz-5'. Effects of the multiple radiation on the twilight atmosphere brightness field are investigated. The calculated images for the atmosphere with aerosol component and without it are compared. The comparison analysis results are aimed at possible diagnostics of the aerosol atmosphere.
