The North Atlantic Regional Aerosol Characterization Experiment (ACE-2) of the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry Project (IGAC) ran from 16 June to 25 July 1997. The results presented in this study are part of the "Clear-sky column closure experiment" (CLEARCOLUMN) activity, one of 6 ACE-2 activities [1]. Clear-sky column closure experiments call for characterization of aerosol layers by simultaneous measurements using different techniques that can be related using models [2]. A wide range of aerosol types was encountered throughout the ACE-2 area, including background Atlantic marine, European pollution-derived and African mineral dust. In a series of papers, we reported on ACE-2 CLEARCOLUMN results obtained by combining airborne sunphotometer and in-situ measurements taken aboard the Pelican aircraft, spaceborne NOAA/VHRR data and ground-based lidar and sunphotometer measurements [3]-[10]. Those and other CLEARCOLUMN results have been summarized in [11]. In this paper we only report on results not shown in this form in [3]-[11].
