The ESA CHARADMExp campaign focuses on marine and marine-dust aerosol mixture characterisation.


What was the outcome of CHARADMexp?

The different aerosol types characterises within CHARADMEExp campaign are mainly marine and dust particles, since smoke was not transported over the two experimental sites during the measurement time period. Utilising the synergy of mainly lidar and sunphotometer with the GARRLiC algorithm and Raman technique their optical and microphysical properties were received.
