[1] In the paper “An intercomparison of lidar-derived aerosol optical properties with airborne measurements near Tokyo during ACE-Asia” by T. Murayama et al. (Journal of Geophysical Research, 108(D23), 8651, doi:10.1029/2002JD003259, 2003), an incorrect black-and-white version of Figure 7 and incorrect black-and-white and color versions of 11 were published. The correct black-and-white version of Figure 7 and the correct Figure 11 appear here with their captions. In addition, two typographical errors have been noted. In the abstract the variable representing the backscattering coefficient should be βa instead of δa. In the reference list the author's initials in the Fernald [1984] reference were incorrect. The correct reference appears below. Fernald, F. G., Analysis of atmospheric lidar observations: Some comments, Appl. Opt., 23, 652–653, 1984.

Figure 7. (left) Comparison of backscattering coefficients and (right) total depolarization ratios at 532 nm by the ground-based lidars in the Tokyo region during the intercomparison. In situ backscattering coefficients measured by the 180° backscatter nephelometer are also plotted. The asterisks indicated in the left figure show the heights of horizontal flight legs.
