Short summary
Reduced visibility can indicate poor air quality. Using long-term visibility measurements, we explore the combined influence of aerosol particle and gas characteristics, and meteorology on long-term visibility. The measured data were fitted to a newly developed light-extinction model to generate predictions of historic aerosol and gas scattering and absorbing properties. This approach allows for estimation of historic aerosol properties where measurements are not available.
