Imaginary Refractive Index of Aerosol Derived from Simultaneous Measurements with Lidar and OPC
A method is proposed by which the imaginary refractive index n i , of aerosol can be retrieved from simultaneous measurements with lidar and OPC. The results indicate that it is feasible and reliable. It may be used to reveal variation of aerosol n i and to process OPC data reasonably.
