Short summary
This study proposes an aerosol-type classification based on parameters from the AErosol RObotic NETwork (AERONET) version 3 level 2.0 inversion product that describe light depolarization and absorption properties of atmospheric particles. We compare our classification with an earlier method and find that the new approach allows for a refined classification of mineral dust that occurs as a mixture with other absorbing aerosols.
