Short summary
The achieved results revealed that the ACDL observations were in good agreement with the ground-based lidar measurements during dust events. The heights of cloud top and bottom from these two measurements were well matched and comparable. This study proves that the ACDL provides reliable observations of aerosol and cloud in the presence of various climatic conditions, which helps to further evaluate the impacts of aerosol on climate and the environment, as well as on the ecosystem in the future.
