Short summary
Short summary
This study aims to evaluate synergetic methods for relative humidity vertical profiling based on lidar–radiometer and lidar–simulation combinations. We demonstrate the effectiveness of combined lidar-based methods for relative humidity profiling in comparison with radiometer observations or WRF simulations and assess temperature-related uncertainties in resulting relative humidity profiles. All results are acquired during the HygrA-CD campaign in Athens (Greece) in 2014.
