Short summary
A neural network algorithm has been developed to retrieve aerosol microphysical parameters from ground-based measurements of skylight intensity and polarization. The neural network is capable of producing accurate estimates of aerosol optical thicknesses, effective radii and refractive index. In addition, it is shown that the use of the neural retrievals as initial guess for an iterative retrieval algorithm results in improved convergence and retrieval accuracy.
