Abstract : The report discusses the following items: A direct method for the integration of the equation of radiative transfer in a turbid atmosphere; Determination of the complex index of refraction of spherical aerosol particles optimal information is obtained of the light scattered by analysing the degree of polarization, the ellipticity and the angle of orientation of the ellipse of the field vector; New results on visual range as function of relative humidity have indicated that there exists a simple relation between the change in visual range and change of particle radius; and, Calculations of the spectral extinction coefficient of atmospheric aerosol particles with different complex refractive indices.
