    Abstract: At present the absorption and scattering of solar radiation by aerosols have been recognized as important parameters for climate change. A way of probing the atmosphere from the ground is to measure the effects of the atmosphere on sunlight transmitted to Earth's surface. This indirect technique provides information about the entire atmosphere abov... Show More
