AERONET-PHOTON (operated by LOA) sun photometer will be used to derive aerosol physical and optical properties for the whole-atmospheric column. Quicklooks are available on the Choc website.
Lidar systems will be used in parallel to sun-photometer observations to derive aerosol vertical profiles.
Those systems are installed in Corsica, Lampedusa, Minorque, Barcelona and Granada. Some quicklooks are available on following sites:
