This paper presents preliminary results of using an extended POLIPHON method for separation of dust and non-dust aerosol backscatter coefficient, applied on a case study of 9th August 2013. That day, long-range transport of mineral dust over EARLINET-ACTRIS lidar site in Warsaw was observed with the 8-channel PollyXT-UW lidar. The dust particles were also observed by the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) on board the CALIPSO satellite. The backward trajectories calculated using the HYSPLIT model confirmed the air-mass transport from Northern Africa. Results yield possible dust separation for the mixture of dust with other aerosol types, such as pollution, marine type, etc.
