Short summary
For the first time the concentration of pollen grains was measured on an hourly basis during a 5-day pollination event in Barcelona, Spain, while at the same time the pollen dispersion in the atmosphere was measured also continuously by a lidar (laser radar) system. The intensity of the pollen dispersion revealed to be strongly correlated with the solar radiation reaching the Earth.
