Atmospheric aerosol as a climate-forming agent of the atmosphere is studied with emphasis on sulfate aerosol, as well as on the problem of cloud-aerosol interaction (indirect aerosol impact on climate). It is shown that the problem of assessing the aerosol impact on climate is still far from complete solution. In this regard, some prospects for future research are suggested.
