Abstract. A shipborne sun-sky-lunar photometer was tested in two trans-Atlantic cruises aboard the German research vessel Polarstern from 54° N to 54° S. A full diurnal cycle of mixed dust-smoke episode measured with shipborne CE318-T is presented for the first time. Latitudinal distribution of AOD from the shipborne CE318-T, Raman lidar and MICROTOPS II shows the same trend with high values at 0 ~ 20° N dust transported belt and low values at Southern Hemisphere. Coefficient of determination for the linear regression between MICROTOPS II and shipborne sun-sky-lunar photometer was 0.993 for AOD at 500 nm and 0.896 for Ångström exponent at 440–870 nm.

Short summary
New shipborne sun-sky-lunar photometer was validated through comparisons with collocated MICROTOPS II and multiwavelength Raman polarization lidar measurements during two trans-Atlantic cruises. A full diurnal cycle of mixed dust-smoke episode was captured by both the shipborne photometer and lidar. Coefficient of determination for the linear regression between MICROTOPS II and the shipborne photometer was 0.993 for AOD at 500 nm based on the entire dataset.
