Short summary
In this study, vertical profiles and column integrated aerosol properties retrieved by GRASP (Generalized Retrieval of Atmosphere and Surface Properties) algorithm are evaluated with in situ airborne measurements made during the ChArMEx-ADRIMED field campaign in summer 2013. Differences between GRASP retrievals and airborne extinction profiles are in the range of 15 to 30 %. Also, the total volume concentration differences between in situ data and GRASP retrieval ranges from 15 to 36 %.
