The purpose of this research is to investigate the ability of GOME-2 instrument on board on the MetOpA and MetOpB platforms, to deliver accurate geometrical features of lofted aerosol layers over the area of Thessaloniki. For this purpose, we use ground-based lidar data from the Thessaloniki lidar station that belongs to EARLINET network. Results of the validation between absorbing aerosol height (ΑΑΗ) fromΑΑΗ) from) from GOME-2 sensor and THELISYS lidar dataset products will be presented.
