A method for correct determining of relative contribution of aerosol into the scattering properties of gas-aerosol medium in continuum spectrum was proposed. As a result, we received the more realistic values of the imaginary part of refractive index of aerosol particles (for the model of homogeneous spheres) in the Jovian atmosphere in the short waves range of spectrum. We used the spectral values of Jupiter’s geometric albedo they had been measured in 1993. The assessed value is as follows: ni = 0.00378, 0.00309, 0.00254, 0.00175, 0.00123, 0.00084, 0.00064, 0.00045, 0.00031, 0.00033, 0.00013, 0.00008 at the wavelengths of λλ 320, 350, 375, 400, 420, 450, 470, 500, 520, 550, 606, 631 nm, respectively.
