Abstract

We present vertical profiles of the aerosol optical properties over Athens and Thessaloniki (Greece) obtained by two ground-based elastic backscatter Raman lidar systems. Most of these profiles were obtained during special events in the frame of the EARLINET project (2000-2003) and were related to Saharan dust outbreaks, photochemical air pollution events, forest fires and volcanic eruptions (Etna volcano).
