Short summary
An algorithm for estimating the vertical profiles of the aerosol physical and optical properties, and the solar heating rate from combining sky radiometer and lidar measurements was proposed. The validity and performance of the algorithm were shown by the intensive sensitivity tests using simulated data for different aerosol profiles and the application to the actual measurements in Tsukuba, Japan.
