Passive measurements of Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) carried out with the CE376 lidar. 

This project aims to obtain the sky background radiance from zenith measurements using the CE376 lidar. Its calibration will be done using radiative transfer models and the optical properties of aerosols derived from photometric measurements taken with the CE318-T. With these calibrated zenith radiance values, an estimation of Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) will be performed using the methodology described in Almansa et al. (2017), followed by a comparison with standard lidar and AERONET AOD products.
