Abstract : The aerosol attenuation coefficient of direct radiation at an altitude of 3-5 km is practically equal to zero. At the same time, the aerosol optical thickness of the atmosphere above 6 km (tau sub 6 approaches infinity) attains a considerable magnitude. This article presents experimental values of tau sub 6 approaches infinity and discusses their dependence on wavelength and the atmospheric conditions. (Author)
