Short summary
The episode of elevated sulfate aerosols over eastern Austria during 1–6 April 2014 is analyzed using in situ measurements, EARLINET lidar measurements, CAMS reanalysis data, and backward simulations with the FLEXPART Lagrangian dispersion model. It was found that the lowest layers came from central Europe, while at higher levels, sources in NW Africa and the eastern US contributed. The methodology can be used as a tool to relate in situ and EARLINET measurements.
