We store tables of extinction, scattering, absorption, etc. on our server at the link below. Also includes a collection of aerosol refractive indices.

Aerosol refractive index databases that include atmospheric aerosol species. These databases are not part of MIRA, but we provide them here as a service. Please be sure to acknowledge these sources appropriately.The Earth Observation Data Group in the Deprtment of Physics at the University of Oxford has a very nice database with hundreds of aerosol refractive indices; includes nice graphics and ascii downloads. http://eodg.atm.ox.ac.uk/ARIA/search Infrared refractive indices for many minerals, include iron oxides; downloadable ascii: http://aram.ess.sunysb.edu/tglotch/optical_constants.html Cosmic dust database, but includes some iron oxides: https://www.astro.uni-jena.de/Laboratory/OCDB/index.html HITRAN https://hitran.org/aerosols/ California Institute of Technology Mineral Spectroscopy Server includes many mineral spectra and links to other databases: http://minerals.caltech.edu/FILES/Publically-available codeSCIATRAN Radiative Transfer Model and Retrieval Algorithms https://www.iup.unibremen.de/sciatran/ ERADIATE https://www.eradiate.eu/site/about/ The Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA) Community Radiative Transfer Model (CRTM)Journal articles with supplementary refractive indicesSpectral complex refractive indices (3-15 µm) for 19 soil samples (with supplementary ascii files): Di Biagio, C., et al.: Global scale variability of the mineral dust long-wave refractive index: a new dataset of in situ measurements for climate modeling and remote sensing, Atmos.
