[1] We determine the extinction-to-backscatter (Sa) ratios of dust using (1) airborne in situ measurements of microphysical properties, (2) modeling studies, and (3) the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) observations recorded during the NASA African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (NAMMA) field experiment conducted from Sal, Cape Verde during August to September 2006. Using CALIPSO measurements of the attenuated backscatter of lofted Saharan dust… CONTINUE READING
