Short summary
Aerosol properties were studied during a mega-fire event in summer 2012 over Siberia using ground-based measurements of spectral solar radiation at the AERONET site in Tomsk and satellite observations. The data were analysed using multi-year measurements under background conditions and yearly observed wildfires. It is shown that the aerosol radiation characteristics during individual severe fires differ significantly from the ensemble smoke hazes which are typical for the Siberian region.
