The present study is focused on microphysics analysis of different cloud types observed by a multi-wavelength Raman lidar. Particle’s content from a wide variety of cloud types, produced in various atmospheric environments, were investigated using data provided by lidar and validated using ECMWF’s ERA Interim reanalysis. The results emphasized the capability of lidar instruments to detect multiple cloud layers, and to discriminate between ice particles and water droplets found within the studied clouds.
