The report completes the examination of 176 sets of data obtained with optical probing measurements in New Mexico. The study shows that 1 A seasonal trend in the shape of the aerosol attenuation coefficient profile in the surface layer which is related to the strength of the diurnal surface convection 2 the scavenging effects of precipitation are evident in the analysis of mid-tropospheric aerosol contents 3 the relationship between the polar tropopause and upper tropospheric aerosol layer was less well defined in the data obtained during the latter part of 1965 4 data from the latter part of 1965 support the findings that stratospheric aerosols have a tropical origin and 5 the slow abatement of the Mt. Agung volcanic dust through 1965 is evident in changes in stratospheric optical thickness. Author
