Short summary
The observed near-surface aerosol optical properties in urban Nanjing are analysed from March 2014 to February 2016. Substantial analysis in the key optical properties of the surface aerosol fill the gaps in the study on aerosols in Nanjing, even in the Yangtze River Delta (YRD). Relationships between the aerosol extinction coefficient (single scattering albedo) and atmospheric visibility are also carried out in different seasons to figure out the effect of aerosol on the visibility in Nanjing, YRD.
