Evalution of Spatial Scales of Aerosol Atmosphere over the Black Sea

Tolkachenko G.A., Kalinskaya D.V., Smirnov A.V., Prohorenko Y.A.

Results of researches of spatial correlation of atmosphere optical heterogeneities above the Black sea are presented. Measurements of aerosol optical thickness are carried out by two spaced sun photometers. The spatial correlation radius of aerosol optical thickness is estimated and constitutes in order of 160 km. Possibility of revealing the absorbing aerosols properties above the sea is shown on a concrete examples. The recommendations on application of portable photometers in sub-satellite measured experiments are given.
