Figure 3: The natural logarithm of the RCS at 532 nm (parallel polarization). The higher the ln (RCS), the larger the aerosol cross-section. This can be due to larger particles (i.e., cloud droplets or rain) as well as higher numerical particle concentration. Gray and white bars represent the top of aerosol stratifications. The PBL height can be assigned to one of these aerosol layers. The length of the lines represent their indetermination.
