Aerosol optical depths at BTN station
Entry ID: Aerosol_opt_depths_at_BTN

Abstract: Measurements performed at BTN (Icaro Camp) in the austral summers 1988 and 1993
with the UVISIR-2 sun-photometer built at the FISBAT-Institute (cfr. References
below). Aerosol optical depth was evaluated taking into account molecular
scattering and gaseous absorption as H2O, O3 and NO2 (cfr. references below).
Aerosol optical depths were evaluated at 8 channels centered in the 400 - 1050

Quality Evaluation of the total optical depth through Bouguer- Lambert- Beer low.
Aerosol optical depths obtained subtracting contribute of molecular (Rayleigh)
scattering, absorption of water vapour, ozone and NO2.
