Short summary
Strong events of biomass burning aerosol transported from North American forest fires were detected during July 2013 at three European stations from EARLINET. Satellite observations and models were used to estimate the smoke sources and transport paths. Using lidar techniques and regularization algorithms, the aerosol layers were optically and microphysically characterized, finding some common features among the events, concerning the similar aging processes undergone by the particles.
