Development of GRASP radiative transfer code for the retrieval of aerosol microphysics vertical-profiles from space measurements and its impact in ACE mission

Deliverables

Minutes of kick-off meeting and report about board constitution.

Minutes of kick-off meeting and report about board constitution for the action

Development of an algorithm using 3β+2α information for the classification of aerosol size and absorption type

Development of an algorithm using 3β+2α information for the classification of aerosol size and absorption type. Such classification will be the input in the stand-alone inversion. It will be done both for spherical and non-spherical particles (dust)

Intercomparisons of stand-alone lidar inversion versus in-situ airborne data from experimental field campaigns.

Retrievals by the stand-alone inversion will be compared with airborne in-situ instrumentation during special field campaigns such as DISCOVER-AQ organized by NASA, SHADOW organized by the University of Lille and ORACLES where both NASA and the University of Lille participated. Such database is unique for evaluation of aerosol microphysics vertical-profiles, and particularly for aerosol single scattering albedo.

Complete characterization of the stand-alone 3β+2α lidar inversion

Discussion about the capabilities of the stand-alone 3β+2α liar inversion for retrieving aerosol microphysical and absorption properties
