Short summary
We investigate lidar-specific parameters inferred from AERONET sun photometer measurements representative of mineral dust from different source regions. We compare our findings to the literature values on the lidar ratio and the particle linear depolarisation ratio. We find changing values for different source regions, which is in agreement with other observations. For longer wavelengths we find values that are in line with lidar observations.
