Soot-like components of atmospheric aerosol is known to be one of an important factor of air pollution. This matter is especially high priority near the sources of industrial pollution and the composition of atmospheric aerosol would be the most quantity here. In contrast to usual background atmospheric aerosol, solar radiation is especially absorbed by soot-like components in passing through the atmosphere.
