Abstract
An improvement of the estimation of mineral dust longwave, direct radiative forcing is presented. It is based on recent developments that combine Sun photometer and multiwavelength lidar data to retrieve range-resolved coarse- and fine-mode extinction coefficients. The forcings are calculated separately for each mode, and their sum is compared to the classical approach in which only the total extinction is considered. The results of four cases of mineral dust intrusion in Barcelona, Spain, show ...
