Paper Abstract

Models for aerosol in the marine atmospheric boundary layer are reviewed with emphasis on applications to optical and IR propagation. This includes aerosol extinction and effects on the refractivity through coupling between aerosol and temperature and humidity profiles. Atmospheric processes and influencing the aerosol concentrations are discussed. Both empirical models and physical models are considered. In addition, original material is presented on modeling extinction profiles in the marine atmospheric surface layer.
