Paper Abstract

The peculiarities of the aerosol microstructure in the near-ground layer and in the atmospheric column when smoke inflows into the atmosphere are studied. The parameters of aerosol microstructure were determined from the solution of the inverse problem for spectral aerosol extinction coefficients measured by the path method and the aerosol optical thickness measured by means of a sun-photometer in a clean atmosphere and when it was filled with smoke in the Tomsk region. The geometrical cross-section, volume concentration, and mean radius of particles of submicron and coarse aerosol fractions were calculated. Under background conditions, the coarse fraction prevails in the total aerosol volume. When air is filled with smoke, the submicron fraction of aerosol particles becomes dominant in the total aerosol volume. As a result, the particle radius averaged over the total ensemble decreases in a smoke-contaminated atmosphere. Also, when the atmosphere is filled with smoke, the nature of the regression relations between the microstructural parameters of different aerosol fractions and the spectral characteristics of the aerosol extinction of light significantly change.
