Short summary
Scattering properties of the atmospheric aerosol were measured in the Sierra Nevada with a custom-built polar nephelometer; scattering coefficient, phase function, asymmetry parameter, and backscattered fraction have been derived. Phase function and asymmetry parameter of the Sahara aerosol differ significantly from the usual aerosol. The asymmetry parameter permits distinction between Sahara and non-Sahara aerosol. Gobi desert aerosol scattering is similar to that of the Sahara.
