A Three-Wavelength Polarization-Raman Lidar (TWPRL) system for aerosol and clouds was developed. This lidar system provides α at 532 and 355 nm, β at 355, 532 and 1064 nm, and σ at 532 nm as well as water vapor content using Raman lidar techniques. The temporal and vertical variation of aerosols and clouds could be determined. We conducted shipborne TWPRL measurements over Yellow Sea of China from August to September in 2014. The derived aerosol optical properties indicate that the developed lidar system worked very well. 24-hour continuous measurements with the shipborne TWPRL during the cruise are presented.
