Abstract
This paper describes an all-sky photometric complex being developed at the Institute of Atmospheric Optics, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Tomsk. The complex is intended for the observation of distribution of scattered solar radiation over the sky. Also given in this paper are description of an operating model of such an all-sky photometer and some preliminary results of observations. The solar radiation scattered in the atmosphere is one of the important sources of information about the optical and physical state of the atmosphere.1 The development of means for observation of the atmospheric state based on recording of the solar radiation scattered in the atmosphere remains urgent now. Means for diagnostics of the optical and physical states of the atmosphere in real time on the basis of angular brightness distribution with allowance for the parameter variations as functions of elevation angle and time are of special interest not only for scientific research, but also for meteorological and ecological applications.2 T1i is the objective to be pursued by the development of the all-sky photometric complex.
