Atmospheric aerosol profiles based on a synergy of ceilometer and sun-sky-photometer measurements

The dataset is generated using the GRASP algorithm. It utilizes a synergy of ceilometer and sunphotometer measurements to retrieve aerosol particle size distribution, the spectral index of refraction, absorption and the degree of sphericity as well as a profile of aerosol extinction.
