A two-parameter model is proposed for calculation of atmospheric aerosol optical depths in 0.4 to 12 mkm wavelength range along a zenith path and 1-km long horizontal path. The input parameters of the model are the values of aerosol optical depth at the wavelengths of 0.48 and 0.69 mkm. The model can be used for separation of the atmospheric aerosol optical depth into two parts each being caused by the corresponding extinction by submicron and coarse aerosol fractions.
