摘要
The radiative properties of soot aerosols are highly sensitive to the mixing states of black carbon particles and other aerosol components. Light absorption properties are enhanced by the mixing state of soot aerosols. Quantification of the effects of mixing states on the scattering properties of soot aerosol are still not completely resolved, especially for multiple-scattering properties. This study focuses on the effects of the mixing state on the multiple scattering of soot aerosols using the vector radiative transfer model. Two types of soot aerosols with different mixing states such as external mixture soot aerosols and internal mixture soot aerosols are studied. Upward radiance/polarization and hemispheric flux are studied with variable soot aerosol loadings for clear and haze scenarios. Our study showed dramatic changes in upward radiance/polarization due to the effects of the mixing state on the multiple scattering of soot aerosols. The relative difference in upward radiance due to the different mixing states can reach 16%, whereas the relative difference of upward polarization can reach 200%. The effects of the mixing state on the multiple-scattering properties of soot aerosols increase with increasing soot aerosol loading. The effects of the soot aerosol mixing state on upwelling hemispheric flux are much smaller than in upward radiance/polarization, which increase with increasing solar zenith angle. The relative difference in upwelling hemispheric flux due to the different soot aerosol mixing states can reach 18% when the solar zenith angle is 75 degrees. The findings should improve our understanding of the effects of mixing states on the optical properties of soot aerosols and their effects on climate. The mixing mechanism of soot aerosols is of critical importance in evaluating the climate effects of soot aerosols, which should be explicitly included in radiative forcing models and aerosol remote sensing.
