Abstract : An experimental study demonstrates that there is a strong uncertainty of the 10.6 micrometers laser extinction by the spheric aerosol in relation to the same value of visibility or aerosol concentration. However, the data seem to indicate that there is a certain correlation between 10.6 micrometers laser extinction by atmospheric aerosol and visibility from the statistical point of view. For such a correlation an appropriate expression is given here, and the possible applications in laser engineering are discussed.
