Short summary
This study evaluates the potential of using only aerosol optical depth measurements to characterise the microphysical and optical properties of atmospheric aerosols. With this aim, we used the recently developed GRASP algorithm. The practical motivation for the present study is the large amount of optical-depth-only measurements that exist in the ground-based networks. The retrievals could complete an existing data set of aerosol properties that is key to understanding aerosol climate effects.
