Short summary
In this study we investigate the climatological behavior of the aerosol optical properties over Thessaloniki during the years 2003–2017. For this purpose, measurements from two individual networks, the European Lidar Aerosol Network (EARLINET) and the Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET), were deployed. The analysis implies that the EARLINET sampling schedule can be quite effective in producing data that can be applied to climatological studies.
