Fine scale resolution analysis was applied to the complicated aerosol structures observed with the PollyXT-UW lidar over Warsaw during the night of 9/10 August 2015. The full sets of the particle optical properties profiles, so called 3β+2α+2δ+wv (3 backscattering, 2 extinction coefficients, 2 depolarization ratios and water vapour mixing ratio), were obtained to discriminate multiple aerosol height sectors, which were then used for the microphysical properties inversion. The statistical characterization of the main aerosol/mixture types was obtained.
