Near-surface and columnar measurements with a micro pulse lidar of atmospheric pollen in Barcelona, Spain

We present for the first time continuous hourly measurements of pollen near-surface concentration and lidar derived profiles of particle backscatter coefficients and of volume and particle depolarization ratios during a 5-day pollination event observed in Barcelona, Spain, between 27 and 31 March 2015.
