Data obtained from HSRL-2 observations carried out on 20 September 2016 during the ORACLES campaign are publicly accessible. In our presentation we invert 3β+2α data into (1) particle size distributions with a regularization algorithm, and subsequently compute (2) single scattering albedo. We carry out a first comparison to the same particle characteristics measured with airborne in-situ instruments. We find good agreement of the data products. However, a more detailed study is needed as correction factors and sources of retrieval and measurement uncertainties need to be tested.
