Continuous vertically resolved aerosol measurements using lidar were performed in Tehran, Iran. Lidar results has been used in combination with particulate matter monitoring, synoptic meteorology observa- tion as well as satellite-based measurements. The aerosol types are classified by their optical properties. The volume linear depolarization ratio (VLDR) at 532 nm lies mostly between 0:05-0:10. These results show that mostly urban pollution mixed with particles are present in the atmosphere above Tehran. During dust events, the VLDR at 532 nm lies between 0:20-0:35.
