Videen, G., W. Sun, M. Kocifaj, K. Kai, and M.I. Mishchenko, 2015: Topical issue on optical particle characterization and remote sensing of the atmosphere: Part II. J. Quant. Spectrosc. Radiat. Transfer, 153, 1-3, doi:10.1016/j.jqsrt.2015.01.005.

This represents the second topical issue on optical particle characterization and remote sensing. These two issues resulted from recent interest in increasing our understanding of the Earth-atmosphere system that has been a scientific and political priority for the last few decades. While the initial issue had a stronger focus on microphysics and its implications to the Earth-atmosphere system, this issue is more applied, with a heavier weighting on remote-sensing aspects, atmospheric information retrieval. The first issue was roughly divided into studies that focused on observations of aerosols, associated properties of aerosols and their effects on light-scattering, retrievals of aerosol properties and novel applications.

This topical issue is the second of two parts. Within this issue we analyze different aspects of the problem of atmospheric characterization and present a broad overview of the topical area, with a focus especially on lidar measurements and information retrieval. Research includes the development of new observational techniques, theory, experiment and atmospheric characterizations ranging from fundamental microphysical properties of individual aerosol particles to broad characterizations of the entire atmosphere.
