|Abstract||An intense Saharan dust transport episode occurred over Athens, Greece between March 28 and April 3, 2009. Urban aerosol sampling was carried out at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) Campus at the top of a building at 14 m from ground level and included: PM10 continuous concentration monitoring and PM10 sampling and analysis. The elemental composition was determined for 15 elements: Si, Al, Fe, K, Ca, Mg, S, Cr, Ni, Cu, Zn, Mn, Ti, V, and P. SEM-EDX analysis has been performed in selected samples. The NTUA compact 6-wavelength Raman lidar system was used to retrieve the optical properties of aerosols in the troposphere during April 2nd.|
