Smoke layers in the stratosphere were observed during autumn 2017 using PollyXT-UW Raman lidar at the European Aerosol Research Lidar Network in the frame of the Aerosol Cloud and Trace Gases Research Infrastructure, i.e. the EARLINET-ACTRIS site in Warsaw, Poland. The analysis was focused on discriminating very weak signatures of smoke layers in the stratosphere and investigating their optical properties. Preliminary results are presented and discussed. A decrease of the lidar-derived stratospheric aerosol optical depth contribution to the total optical depth was detected after the stratospheric smoke particles circled Northern Hemisphere.
