Short summary
The measurements from 2009 to 2013 using a multiwavelength Raman lidar were conducted to identify the changes in optical properties of East Asian dust. We found that the optical properties of Asian dust change depending on the dust plume's vertical position and the change of vertical position during transport over China. We believe this paper provides a better understanding of the optical properties of mixed Asian dust plums and the effect of long-range transport on dust properties.
