Abstract

The presence of soot in the lower stratosphere was recently established by in situ measurements. To isolate their contribution to optical measurements from that of background aerosol, the soot's bulk optical properties must be determined. Laboratory measurements of extinction and polarization of randomly distributed soot were conducted. For all soot, measurements show a slight reddening extinction between 400 and 700 nm and exhibit a maximum of 100% polarization at a scattering angle of 75 +/- 5 degrees. Such results cannot be reproduced by use of Mie theory assumptions. The different optical proper-ties of soot and background stratospheric aerosol could allow isolation of soot in future analyses of stratospheric measurements.
