The aerosol optical characteristics were computed using the SKYRAD.pack version 4.2 developed by Nakajima et al. (1996). We present the temporal and spatial variation and the relationship of Ångsröm parameters (i.e., aerosol optical thickness and Ångström exponent).

Ship-borne Sky Radiometer (POM-01 MK-II)
We started the monitoring of aerosols optical properties since 1994, by using a sky radiometer (http://skyrad.sci.u-toyama.ac.jp/). The sky radiometer is anautomatic instrument that takes observations only in daytime under the clear sky. Observation of aureole interval was made every five minutes by once. There were used to measure direct solar irradiance and diffuse solar radiance.
