Short summary
A new aerosol typing algorithm based on artificial neural networks (ANNs) has been developed. The algorithm is providing the most probable aerosol type based on EARLINET LIDAR profiles. The ANNs used by the algorithm were trained using synthetic data, for which a new aerosol model has been developed. Blind tests on EARLINET data samples showed the capability of the algorithm to retrieve the aerosol type from a large variety of data, with different quality and physical content.
