Turbidity

Chemistry

The degree of clearness of a liquid or the lack of visual clarity of a liquid.

Meteorology

Condition of the atmosphere which reduces its transparency to radiation, especially to visible radiation.

This is applied to a cloud-free portion of the atmosphere that owes its turbidity to air molecules and suspensoids such as smoke, dust, and haze, and the scintillation effects.
