The applied new polarization-lidar/photometer method for the extraction of the dust-related lidar-ratio information from the lidar data is outlined, and the results of the dust outbreak which lasted over several days are discussed. The results confirm an Aerosol Robotic Network photometer study on Arabian dust lidar ratios.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/8619||ISSN:||1944-8007 (Online)||DOI:||10.1002/grl.50898||Rights:||© American Geophysical Union
