Paper Abstract

Experimental data on statistical properties of an aerosol content in the atmospheric surface layer collected by an in situ method with a nephelometer and ultrasonic meteorological stations are presented. Thus, obtained data are classified on the basis of the Monin-Obukhov similarity theory has been done. The analysis of asymmetry coefficient of the scattering phase function has shown, that the change of microphysical properties of aerosol happens with delay by approximately 6 hours after the establishment of stable thermal stratification. On the contrary the change of sign of stratification results in an immediate reset of microphysical parameters to the initial condition, i.e., without any delay.
