Abstract
Ground-based measurements of the transmitted and scattered sunlight were performed during several campaign measurements, in desertic, oceanic, and continental sites. The measurements were mainly conducted to assess the capability of passive measurements to provide information about the aerosols and the capability of Mie theory to provide the convenient framework for the data analysis. Special attention was given to polarization measurements, as a known very sensitive test of scattering features. The results of different campaigns are presented and analyzed. The polarization capacity to provide comprehensive information about the atmospheric aerosol is discussed.
