Short summary
This study presents an evaluation of an air quality model using aerosol measurements from radiometric and lidar data at Thessaloniki, Greece. The aerosol mass concentration profiles of CAMx are compared against the fine and coarse mode aerosol concentration profiles retrieved by the Lidar-Radiometer Inversion Code (LIRIC). The CAMx model and the LIRIC algorithm results were compared in terms of mean mass concentration profiles, center of mass and integrated mass concentration.
