Abstract:

Results are presented of Mie calculations which were run to determine the scattering, absorption and extinction coefficients and phase matrix for spherical aerosol particles in the infrared assuming a r to the -4.5 power size distribution. The aerosol particles considered in the Mie calculations were water droplets, sea-salt particles, water solubles, dust particles, and ammonium sulphate particles. The infrared wavelengths used in the Mie calculations varied from 2.5 to 40 micrometers.
