This is a report of a study to investigate and explain the influence of the aerosol component on the total atmospheric scattering by direct comparison of measured aerosol distributions and light-scattering functions. The theoretical scattering properties of single spherical particles with various refractive indices were studied, and then the complex scattering functions for power-series-size distributions of such particles were derived. Especially the influence of various particle-size groups on the total scattering is pointed out. Author
