dc.description.abstract In this study, by modifying the optical parameterization of Regional Climate model (RegCM), the authors have computed and compared the Effective Single-Scattering Albedo (ESSA) which is a representative of VIS spectral region. The arid, semi-arid and agriculturally active areas of South Africa showed a higher ESSA (>0.93). Due to intensive biomass burning and atmospheric processes of BC particles in the south-east coastal areas, lower values of ESSA were observed (~ 0.73 to 0.88). The evaluation of the simulated ESSA, in comparison with MISR retrieved data, exhibited a very good agreement (deviation < 8%). en_US
