Paper Abstract

An intensive study of an aerosol intrusion episode in Buenos Aires is presented. We have combined back-trajectories calculations (HYSPLIT) and satellite images with the aim of revealing the origin of these air masses. The aerosol intensive properties were characterized using a collocated sun-photometer from the AERONET network. The corresponding pressure levels for each air mass were obtained by means of a LIDAR system, which was also used to calculate the aerosol extinction profiles for the available wavelengths.
