Paper Abstract

We report in this paper lidar measurements of two events of transport of dust from the Sahara region to the Mediterranean Sea, observed in Lecce, Italy (40°20'N,18°06'E). The observations have been made in the framework of the EARLINET project, in which aerosol measurements are performed in all Europe by 21 stations on a coordinate basis. Lidar measurements are compared with informations available from other sources. General results for the lidar ratio are also presented.
