We aim to evaluate the higroscopicity effect in aerosols from backscattering and water vapor mixing ratio with the LIDAR and LIDAR Raman techniques, thus be able to estimate the direct and inderect effects of aerosols when humidity is present in urban atmospheres where high mixing and concetrations of aerosols are present.
