Abstract

Optical properties of Persian Gulf oil fire aerosols were investigated by simultaneous analyses of ground based solar radiation measurements and satellite remote sensing technique for a period of June 12-September 17, 1991 at Bushehr, Iran. The atmospheric turbidity at Bushehr increased nearly regularly with a period of one week. Especially this phenomenon was significant in June with an increase of optical thickness as large as 1.3 at wavelength of 0.5 μm. The absorption index also increased as large as 0.03-0.05 in these events showing an effect of oil fire aerosols from Kuwait.
