Name: | Use of an Average complex refractive index in atmospheric propagation calculations |

Description: | . B. Gillespie, S. G. Jennings, and J. D. Lindberg, "Use of an average complex refractive index in atmospheric propagation calculations," Appl. Opt. 17, 989-991 (1978)
In most atmospheric propagation calculation it is generally ssumed that atmospheric dust is composed of homogeneous spherical particles all with the same average complex refractive index and all distributed by the same size distribution. As pointed out by Bergstrom, it is perhaps more realisitc to assume that since diiferent optical constants and each component will have an associated size distribution characteristic of its production. In particular, the free carbon type particles and the soil derived particles should be different. Previous work in our laboratory with commericallly available cascade impactors has shown that, for some minerals characteristic of the local envirorment, the imaginary refractive index of desert dust is a strong function of particle size. |
