Abstract

Theoretical calculations using continental, fog, and precipitation aerosol size distribution models are presented here for extinction and backscatter coefficients along horizontal propagation paths at sea level. The coefficients are presented for various atmospheric conditions and for wavelengths between 0.34 μ and 10.6 μ. Finally, the theoretical results are confirmed by comparison with outdoor transmission studies at 10.6 μ and 0.63 μ.
