Abstract
Observations of the horizontal distribution of the aerosol extinction coefficient within the atmospheric marine boundary layer are presented. The extinction coefficient profiles are calculated using Klett's inversion method. The variations in aerosol optical properties caused by the underlying surface are studied. Constant-elevation cross sections of extinction distribution along different azimuths over land and sea surfaces ((sigma) equals 0.23 divided by 0.14 km-1 and (sigma) equals 0.2 - 0.29 km-1 over land and sea respectively) are presented and analyzed.
