Short summary
We implement a multimode approach in which each mode has fixed effective radius and effective variance. In this way the algorithm obtains more flexibility in describing the aerosol size distribution and avoids the high nonlinear dependence of the forward model on the aerosol size parameters. The synthetic and real data experiments show that multimode retrievals are good alternatives to the parametric two-mode approach.
