Peculiarities of the aerosol turbidity of the atmosphere under conditions of different types of air masses (equatorial, marine tropical, marine mid-latitude, and continental) are considered based in the data obtained during two cruises of the Research Vessel Akademik Mstislav Keldysh in Atlantic Ocean. It is noted that the differences in spectral AOT of the atmosphere in different air masses are statistically significant. It is shown that the aerosol turbidity of the atmosphere in air masses of marine origin is appreciably determined by the influence of relative humidity of air and wind velocity.
