Abstract: Atmospheric aerosols are generating from the Earth's surface except from aviation emissions or meteorite debris. The height of aloft aerosol layers is a critical determinant of global aerosol transport and dispersion. Despite its importance in geo-locational characteristics of aerosols, aerosols vertical information is typically unknown. Aerosol vertical profile is an important parameter for understanding the radiative effects of aerosols and for generating more accurate aerosol models. With the development and improvement of the remote sensing techniques, the integrated dataset from both active and passive remote sensing techniques have been provided a comprehensive observation of aerosols and radiation which are urgently required for air quality and climatic study. Ground-based sensors or satellite observations are well-developed and used for measuring aerosol vertical profiles. In this chapter, measurement techniques for the aerosol vertical profiles is explained and discussed, which is estimated using integrated data from ground-based measurement, satellite observation, radiative transfer model (RTM) calculation.
