Abstract
In the paper the description of the last version of code MaexPro (Marine aerosol extinction Profile) for calculation spectral and vertical profiles of aerosol extinction coefficient α(λ), aerosol sizes distribution, area distribution, volumes distribution, modes aerosol extinction spectra is submitted. Code MaexPro is a computer program under constant development to estimate of EO systems signal power at a location place in which a fetch is key entrance parameter. The program carries out calculation α(λ), as functions of atmospheric effects using standard meteorological parameters, aerosol microphysical structure, a spectral band and a height of the sensor location. Spectral behavior α(λ) can be submitted as graphically, and as tables. Commands overplot for superposition or change of figures; profiles extrapolation; a lens; all kinds of possible copying; the data presentation, convenient for an input in code MODTRAN, and etc. are stipulated. The code MaexPro is a completely mouse-driven PC Windows program with a user-friendly interface. Calculation time of spectral and vertical profiles of α(λ) depends on the necessary wave length resolution, radius of aerosol particles and the location place height, and does not exceed tens seconds for each new meteorological condition. Other calculations characteristics, such as aerosol sizes distribution, area distribution, volumes distribution, modes aerosol extinction spectra, are performed in a few seconds.
