Estimating meteorological visibility from air chemical and particulate composition

When you want to take into account as many contributing factors as possible, you will need a complete radiative transfer model, preferably a physics-based one (as opposed to fast radiative transfer ...

Is it unusual to see haboobs travel over the Indian Ocean with shelf clouds on top? What conditions can bring all of this about?

Dust storms or haboobs traveling over seas and oceans is a common phenomenon, and will occur in any desert (having loose soil and sand) with a coastline. Such deserts include the Sahara, the Arabian ...

The influence of special emissions (possibly coal mining activity) on particulate matters

The first thing to consider is, if it is not the adjacent coal mine, what other nearby sources could produce such a result. Is there a coal fired power station or a factory nearby. If there are no ...

Estimating meteorological visibility from air chemical and particulate composition

This is best answered with the Koschmeider Equation. The Koschmeider Equation which estimates visible range based on the particulate matter is as follows: Koschmeider Equation (units in ft. or m) = (...
