In this work we evaluate the possibilities to assess aerosol-cloud interactions in short time scales (2 min.) on an observational base. Retrievals of the cloud effective radius and number concentration in a liquid-water cloud by using the multiple scattering technique Dual-FOV Polarization lidar, together with the aerosol extinction coefficient in the boundary layer has shown a correspondence between the aerosol and cloud properties in the 6 hours case presented, obtaining a value of ACIN = 0.76 ± 0.29, which corroborates the potential of lidar observations to study the relation between aerosols and clouds on small scales.
