Short summary
We present a comparison study of two data inversion algorithms that are used to derive microphysical properties of atmospheric particle pollution. The algorithms have been developed for the analysis of data collected with advanced light detection and ranging (lidar) instruments from the European EARLINET network. The result of this study shows that two key parameters needed for climate change studies, i.e. particle size and light absorption capacity, can be derived with reasonable accuracy.
