Abstract

A simple model is described which predicts the vertical profile of aerosol extinction and the aerosol optical thickness at visible wavelengths in a well-mixed marine boundary layer, given the relative humidity and aerosol extinction coefficient at the surface (shipboard level) and the height of the boundary layer. The model is presented in the form of both analytical approximation formulas and nomograms.
