Regularities of Angular Distribution of Near-Horizon Sky Brightness in the Cloudless Atmosphere

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The methods of sun-photometry of the atmosphere based, for example, on interpretation of the angular distribution of radiation in the solar almucantar are widely used for retrieval of the aerosol optical characteristics. Preliminary analysis has shown that the near-horizon region also can be interesting for solving some applied problems. As is known, investigations of the structure of the daytime cloudless sky brightness at observation from the ground were carried out principally at zenith angles less than 80{sup o} in visible wavelength range. For further development of the methods it is necessary to obtain more complete data on the distribution of ... continued below

Description

The methods of sun-photometry of the atmosphere based, for example, on interpretation of the angular distribution of radiation in the solar almucantar are widely used for retrieval of the aerosol optical characteristics. Preliminary analysis has shown that the near-horizon region also can be interesting for solving some applied problems. As is known, investigations of the structure of the daytime cloudless sky brightness at observation from the ground were carried out principally at zenith angles less than 80{sup o} in visible wavelength range. For further development of the methods it is necessary to obtain more complete data on the distribution of the cloudless sky brightness at great zenith angles of observation and wider wavelength range. The regularities of formation of the sky brightness field in the near-horizon region and just above the horizon line are considered in this paper.
