Short summary
We performed synergetic active and passive remote-sensing observations at Minorca (Spain), over more than 3 weeks in spring 2013. We characterized the aerosol optical properties and type using a combination of Rayleigh–Mie–Raman lidar and sun-photometer data. Results show a high variability due to changing atmospheric transport regimes and aerosol sources. Such variability significantly influences the radiative balance through the entire atmosphere and then the climate of the Mediterranean area.
