The authors present a method that can be used to retrieve the stratospheric ozone concentration, the aerosol extinction, and the microphysical aerosol characteristics. The method is based on the direct solar radiation extinction measurements from the satellite multichannel spectrometer 'Spektr-256'. The Angstrom's approximation of the aerosol extinction of the wavelength dependence in 0.45 - 0.83 mkm is being realized to separate the aerosol and ozone optical thickness. The Tichonov's method for reconstruction is being used. The aerosol type and the vertical aerosol refractive index suppositions give possibility for every altitude step -- 65 m to calculate the aerosol size distributions, the average aerosol radius and width size distributions. The above-mentioned remote sensing method is being applied by the authors to the serial experimental dates 1993-1994. In remote sensing time the aerosol size distributions have been taking of the single-modal shape distributions, generally, are being shown the calculating maps of the size distributions. The presence of the considerable fluctuations, the average aerosol radius, and width size distributions are being permitted on assumption that the stratospheric aerosol was a band-like structure with thickness of the bands about 1 km.
