Review of the manuscript ’The vertical aerosol type distribution above Israel - 2 years of lidar observations at the coastal city of Haifa’ by Heese et al.
The manuscript provides analysis of a two-year period of lidar measurements in Haifa. Lidar measurements in the Eastern Mediterranean are rare and the PollyXT lidar provide a large set of lidar optical properties for characterizing the general aerosol distribution as well as for aerosol typing. For the analysis of the data well-established and well-described methods were used, and the results of this paper provide valuable contribution to better understand the general aerosol situation and variability in the Eastern Mediterranean. However, the paper should be carefully revised before final publication. The suggestions mainly consider the structure of the paper to increase its readability and comprehensibility.
