Short summary
We present a detailed evaluation of physical properties of aerosols, like aerosol number concentration and aerosol size, obtained from an advanced, airborne, multi-wavelength high-spectral-resolution lidar (HSRL-2) system. These lidar-retrieved physical properties were compared to airborne in situ measurements. Our findings highlight the advantages of advanced HSRL measurements and retrievals to help constrain the vertical distribution of aerosol volume or mass loading relevant for air quality.
