Short summary
Aerosol type seasonal variability and sources in Siberia are obtained from an automatic 808 nm micropulse lidar. A total of 540 aerosol backscatter vertical profiles have been retrieved using careful lidar calibration. Aerosol optical depth is retrieved using sun-photometer complementary observations and an aerosol source apportionment based on aerosol transport model simulations. Comparisons with satellite observations are discussed for three case studies.
