A method of evaluating the aerosol size distribution from the spectral attenuation measurements is shown. The process consists of solving the simultaneous integral equations, and examples are given of solutions based on the attenuation measurements made by Knestrick et al. over the Chesapeake Bay. It is found that the evaluated individual size distributions do not necessarily follow the power law, although departures from it are mostly small. If the power law is to be adopted neglecting small… CONTINUE READING
