The lidar ratios of Saharan dust at 355 and 532 nm (LR355 and LR532) measured over West Africa during SHADOW field campaign are analyzed. Results demonstrate that even for pure dust, the lidar ratio may present strong height dependence. The possible reasons of height dependence of lidar ratios during strong dust events are considered.
