Abstract

The Twomey-Chahine inversion algorithm is applied to experimental atmospheric transmittance data in the 0.4–2.4-μm wavelength range and atmospheric aerosol size distributions deduced. The conditions for successful inversion of transmittance data are investigated in numerical experiments, and it is shown that too small a wavelength range results in a Junge-type distribution in all cases and that noise in the measurements in excess of 4–5% results in inversion artifacts.
