Short summary
Using a backscatter N2-Raman lidar deployed on the western part of the French Riviera, we investigate the vertical aerosol structure below 5 km. By coupling these observations with spaceborne instruments and trajectory modeling, we highlight plumes of particulate pollutants moving towards the French Riviera. This pollution, mainly due to traffic and petrochemical activities, originates from the Spanish coast (Costa Blanca and Costa Brava–Daurada) and mixes with local emissions.
