Improving the United States electromagnetic EM and electro-optical EO prediction capabilities is imperative to maintaining a tactical advantage in the operational environment. The objective of this research is to estimate aerosol effects on radiative transfer through the atmosphere, particularly the contribution due to coastal surf-generated aerosol, and will include the characterization and measurement of marine aerosols, especially in coastal regions. This research involves analysis of the aerosol data, specifically the total extinction coefficient, collected during CASPER Coupled Air Sea Processes and Electromagnetic Ducting Research-East from various sensors deployed off the coast of Duck, North Carolina, from 9 October 2015 to 6 November 2015.
