Abstract

New Rayleigh-scattering optical thickness values for the terrestrial atmosphere in the 260 < λ < 1500-nm wavelength range have been calculated using updated data on atmospheric optical parameters. The calculations include molecular scattering from water vapor and take into account varying atmospheric composition with altitude. The new Rayleigh-scattering coefficients average 4.5% lower than those listed by Penndorf in 1955.
