Abstract
Latitudinal distribution of the aerosol optical depth (AOD) of the atmosphere over ocean in southern hemisphere is considered on the basis of data of long-term measurements (AERONET MAN). It is shown that the aerosol turbidity of the atmosphere decreases with increasing latitude in Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans. Simple linear relationships are proposed to describe the latitudinal distribution of AOD.
