The complex index of refraction of the Martian dust particles suspended in the atmosphere is estimated. Using this parameter, we solve the multiple scattering equations and investigate quantitatively heating of the Martian atmosphere due to absorption of the visible solar radiation. Our results show that the atmosphere is strongly heated up by absorption of solar radiation due to dust, and that the thermal structure of the Martian atmosphere would be almost determined by the balance betweendoi:10.2151/jmsj1965.53.3_214 fatcat:omnqkfznuvdrnaapwh5s3ar64m
