Abstract. Multi-filter Rotating Shadowband Radiometers
(MFRSRs) provide routine measurements of the aerosol op-
tical depth () at six wavelengths (0.415, 0.5, 0.615, 0.673,
0.870 and 0.94 µm). The single-scattering albedo ( 0) is
typically estimated from the MFRSR measurements by as-
suming the asymmetry parameter (g). In most instances,
