Short summary
Lidar measurements of two expeditions across the Atlantic Ocean aboard the research vessel Polarstern are presented. In addition to Saharan dust layers and complex dust–smoke mixtures, pure marine conditions with enhanced particle depolarisation ratios on top of the marine boundary layer could be observed. A statistical analysis shows latitudinal differences in the optical properties within the marine boundary layer and illustrates the potential of these properties for aerosol classification.
