Abstract

Within the program of the Complex Atmospheric Energetics Experiment (CAENEX-70) and with the help of an IL-18 aircraft flying laboratory, we have measured spectral (in the 0.4–2.4-μm interval) radiative fluxes, the energy balance, and flux divergence of energy in a free atmosphere (at 0.3–8.4-km heights) with Z = 55° over a sandy surface. Simultaneously, the results of aerosol measurements gave the physical explanation to many peculiar features of optical observations. In particular, aerosol absorption of shortwave radiation has been isolated. The probable variability of aerosol absorption has been estimated on the basis of observational data obtained on other days.
