Paper Abstract

Typically, we use Klett-Fernald method for retrieving aerosol optical properties. However, the results from these methods critically depend on the lidar ratio, thus affecting the accuracy of the inversion results. In this paper, we adopted a new method to retrieve the vertical distribution profiles of aerosol backscatter coefficient, aerosol extinction coefficient and lidar ratio over Beijing region by combining rotational Raman - Mie lidar and CALIPSO(Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations). The results were compared with the results determined by the conventional method, which shows a good agreement. Compared with the conventional method, the results from this new method are more reliable and less noisy, which provide richer information for researching the atmospheric aerosol properties over Beijing region.
