This paper proposes the genetic classification of areas of the Atlantic Ocean characterizing the spatial distribution of atmospheric turbidity due to aerosol over the ocean. Zoning is based on the results of many-month measurements of atmospheric transmittance performed during five sea missions (1989–1996). It takes into account basic factors of aerosol field formation over the ocean, as well as data of preceding atmospheric investigations. Quantitative data on atmospheric aerosol optical thickness and the Angstrom parameter are presented for different areas of the Atlantic Ocean in the latitude zone from 10°S to 60°N.
