Here we describe optical investigations of the atmosphere conducted from January to April 1995 in some regions of the Atlantic Ocean from the equator to the English Channel. Certain meteorological peculiarities of the regions investigated are considered together with the volume of experimental data and their statistical significance. We also present in this paper preliminary results on space-time variability of the aerosol number density in the adjacent to water layer as well as the aerosol optical depth and total moisture content. The continental aerosol is shown to influence greatly on the oceanic atmosphere characteristics.
