Abstract
We present for the first time continuous hourly measurements of pollen near-surface concentration and lidar-derived profiles of particle backscatter coefficients and of volume and particle depolarization ratios during a 5-day pollination event observed in Barcelona, Spain, between 27 and 31 March 2015. Daily average concentrations ranged from 1082 to 2830aEuro-pollenaEuro-m(-3). Platanus and Pinus pollen types represented together more than 80aEuro-% of the total pollen. Maximum hourly pollen co...
