Short summary
A Saharan dust event is studied in detail using ground-based remote sensing measurements from lidar technology, as well as sun- and star-photometers. The use of combined techniques allows for obtaining both profiles and column-integrated microphysical properties during night and daytime. Besides, for the first time a validation of the CAS-POL depolarization measurements and LIRIC profiles is performed, thanks to the availability of aircraft in situ measurements, obtaining reasonable agreement.
