Abstract
This paper present a statistical analysis of aerosol phase functions measured under marine conditions with the total atmospheric optical thickness. The result of the analysis is an empirical equation that expresses the aerosol phase function of scattering in the visible region through two tabulated empirical functions and a total aerosol optical thickness at 745 nm. The extrapolation of the atmospheric optical thickness to the visible spectrum is accomplished via an angstrom-type empirical equation that includes the wavelength of light and the aerosol optical thickness at 745 nm.
