Interactive comment on "Physical properties and concentration of aerosol particles over the Amazon tropical forest during background and biomass burning conditions" by P. Guyon et al. P. Guyon et al. Abstract single-scattering albedo only lists values from the end of the dry season. They should probably give values from both time periods. Response: This is not correct. In the abstract we do not only give single-scattering albedo values for the end of the dry season, but for both the first part

Single-scattering albedo for the cleanest period of the wet season was 0.97, and a median value of 0.91 was found for the dry season period. All values given in the abstract are actually S935
