Abstract

Model calculations show that the aerosol particles within the lower troposphere usually contribute more than 80% to the total optical thickness of all particles within the atmosphere. For relative humidities higher than 99% within a thin layer of about 80 m thickness, the main contribution to the total optical thickness comes from this layer.
