A long Saharan dust event over the western Mediterrranean: Lidar, Sun photometer observations and regional dust modelling. (2006-08-31)
Open AccessA long Saharan dust event affected the western Mediterranean in the period 12– 28 June 2002. Dust was present mainly between 1- and 5-km height affecting most parts of the Iberian Peninsula and reaching western/central ...
Application of a synergetic lidar and sunphotometer algorithm for the characterization of a dust event over Athens, Greece (2013-11-18)
Open AccessWe present first retrievals of the Lidar-Radiometer Inversion Code (LIRIC), applied on combined lidar and sunphotometer data during a Saharan dust episode over Athens, Greece, on July 20, 2011. A full lidar dataset in terms ...
Estimation of mineral dust long-wave radiative forcing: sensitivity study to particle properties and application to real cases in the region of Barcelona (2014-01-01)
Open AccessThe aerosol radiative effect in the long-wave (LW) spectral range is sometimes not taken into account in atmospheric aerosol forcing studies at local scale because the LW aerosol effect is assumed to be negligible. At ...
