Sea spray aerosol in the marine coastal atmosphere are important for various reasons. They offer a surface for condensation of chemically reactive species such as HNO3, may play a role in corrosion of structures at sea or ashore, sustain fragile eco-systems, transport pollutants and micro-biological species from the sea surface into the atmosphere where they may cause health effects, etc. They also scatter electro-optical radiation and thus affect the transmission at wavelengths from the UV to the IR. An example of the effect on IR transmission in the coastal region is discussed in this contribution.
