In order to document and study airborne pollen in the Mediterranean region, a pollen measurement campaign was performed during February-May 2018, at the Finokalia station in Crete. A ground-based multi-wavelength Raman polarization lidar PollyXT performed continuous measurements, together with a Hirst-type Burkard pollen sampler. The optical properties of pollen layers with presence of airborne pollen are retrieved and presented. Dust-free condition is applied for pollen study, using the dust models.
