Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Various solid and liquid macroscopic particles (including cloud droplets and crystals)  reside in atmosphere.
They interact with atmospheric gases and influence both climate and human health. Therefore, it is of importance to develop new instrumentation and improve existing techniques for the determination of particulate matter vertical columns in atmosphere. The chemical composition of aerosol particles is also of a great interest.
The main subject of this issue is to discuss recent trends and results in the area of remote sensing of atmospheric aerosol and clouds using ground, airborne, shipborne, and satellite optical  instrumentation (in particular, spectrometers and radiometers). This requires the solution of inverse problem of the radiative transfer theory. Therefore, the papers dealing with various aspects of light scattering and radiative transfer in atmosphere are particularly welcome.
