Abstract: [1] Direct observations and size-distribution-based estimates of light-scattering coefficients (b sp ) are presented for the Yosemite Aerosol Characterization Study (YACS), which took place during the summer of 2002, an active fire year. Uncertainty in the estimates of b sp were found to be sensitive to the choice of the aerosol refractive indices, which were retrieved by aligning optical particle counter measurements to differential mobility analyzer observations and, in addition, were calculated from compos…
