Deterioration in atmospheric visibility

Lack of visibility
Visibility degradation
Visibility in the atmosphere decreases when solar radiation in the visible band is scattered by particles or gases. The most efficient scattering particles have sizes similar to those of visible light. These include sulphate aerosol, graphitic soot and hydrocarbons. Combustion of fossil fuels, wood burning and agricultural biomass burning produce light-scattering particles.
