Short summary
Atmospheric dust has a significant impact on the Earth's climate system, and this impact remains highly uncertain. The desert dust is always a mixture of various minerals, and the imaginary part of the complex refractive index often exhibits an increase in UV for dust containing iron oxides. Our results demonstrate that multiwavelength Raman lidar measurements allow for the characterization of the spectral dependence of the imaginary part of dust.
