Abstract:

An examination of the haze regime shows that l the aerosol properties of a surface meteorological range generally affect a mixing layer to 5 km altitude, and 2 the lower and upper visibility limits of a haze regime are defined by meteorological ranges 1.2 km and 15 km respectively. Within these limits eight meteorological ranges are selected for developing uv, visible, and ir aerosol attenuation coefficients. An aerosol scale height is derived for each meteorological range. Finally, the computed aerosol attenuation coefficients are presented as tabulations which include previously published attenuation parameters aerosols, molecules and ozone to 50 km altitude.
