Short summary
An innovative method is presented for deriving particulate matter (PM) concentrations using CALIOP measurements. Deviating from conventional approaches of relying on passive satellite column-integrated aerosol measurements, PM concentrations are derived from near-surface CALIOP measurements through a bulk-mass-modeling method. This proof-of-concept study shows that, while limited in spatial and temporal coverage, CALIOP exhibits reasonable skill for PM applications.
