Abstract: The solar radiation is collected at five optical channels at a continental station Mysore, India during December 2003 - June 2006 using a portable sunphotometer MICROTOPS II. Angstrom’s turbidity parameters, and , have been calculated and analysed on daily, monthly, seasonal and annual basis. The observations show that and vary throughout on individual day because of changes in the atmospheric meteorological parameters. It is observed that is highest during summer and lowest during winter. An anti-correlation between and is observed throughout the day during all seasons indicating continuous redistribution of fine and coarse particles under the influence of meteorological parameters. The yearly comparison of and along with the atmospheric visibility is also analysed and presented in the paper.
