Abstract

Particle attenuated backscatter and depolarization ratio at 532 nm from the WALES (Water Vapor Lidar Experiment in Space) instrument are used in combination with the radar reflectivity from the 35 GHz MIRA35 cloud radar in order to perform an aerosol-cloud target classification on the lidar/radar collocated observations carried out with the High Altitude and LOng-range research aircraft (HALO), in high temporal and spatial resolution. The methodology is applied to the measurements conducted during the North Atlantic Waveguide and Downstream Impact Experiment (NAWDEX) in fall 2016. Here, we present one case study to show the feasibility and information context of the aerosol-cloud discrimination, which can serve as a good complement to the Cloud target categorization applied already in the measurements. Our results demonstrate that the developed mask is capable to identify complex stratifications with different aerosol and cloud types and even aerosol layers of low signal.
