Abstract:

The article reports some results of experimental investigations of attenuation carried out under average turbidity conditions for three portions of the spectrum 0.43, 0.68, and 1.03mu and for three horizontal thicknesses of the atmospheric surface boundary layer 1.21, 3.65, and 9.86 km. The immediate object of the measurement series was to obtain experimental data on the amount of diffuse radiation in 3.65 km thicknesses of the real atmosphere for small angular apertures of the receiver, and to compare these data with the theoretical data obtained earlier. The results of the experiments show that the role of diffused light under typical average turbidity conditions in the atmospheric surface boundary layer visibility 10 to 15 km is not constant.
