Abstract

Dual-wavelength lidar measurements with the small lidar system POLIS of the Ludwig-Maximilians- Universität München were performed during the SALTRACE experiment at Barbados in June and July 2013. Based on high-accuracy measurements of the linear depolarization ratio down to about 200m above ground level, the dust volume fraction and the dust mass concentration within the convective marine boundary layer can be derived. Additional information from radiosonde launches at the ground-based measurement site provide Independent information on the convective marine boundary layer height and the meteorological situation within the convective marine boundary layer.
