Conference paper

Some results of the investigation of relations between atmospheric aerosol optical depth with the assigned level of value and air relative humidity are presented. With an increase of the air relative humidity the probability that the value of the atmospheric aerosol optical depth will not exceed the assigned level at first decreases, reaches the minimum and then increases. The corresponding empirical regression equations between the studied parameters are obtained.
