Abstract

The report describes a series of weather numerical mesoscale simulations performed in high resolution to understand to which extent the lidar-detected evolution of the particles distribution along the vertical could be explained by the boundary layer and/or horizontal transport processes. A particular stress was put on investigation of boundary layer parameters. The case study of 21st September was chosen for simulations, when the CCU-CAML lidar at Ispra registered quite high values of aerosols up to 1 km altitude, and the lidar revealed a descent of the highest aerosol loads towards the ground during the morning.
