Model estimates are presented for optical and microphysical changes in aerosol constituent due to turbulent mixing and gravitational sedimentation of extraterrestrial particles. Corresponding variations in lidar ratio are shown to reach 300–400%, mostly because of the dynamics of changes in coarse aerosol fraction with altitude.
