Abstract
The paper analyzes the effect of clouds on the spectral dependence of the effective height of the aerosol atmosphere. It is shown that the presence of clouds can change the spectral dependence of the effective atmospheric height, namely, thin cloudiness leads to the increase of the effective atmospheric height in the 1-12 μm spectral region, while thicker one increases it in the 0.4-12 μm region.
