Geometrical and optical characteristics of cirrus clouds using Raman lidar Polly XT measurements at different locations are presented. The Polly XT has been participated in two long-term experimental campaigns, one close to New Delhi in India and one at Elandsfontein in South Africa, providing continuous measurements and covering a wide range of cloud types. First results of cirrus cloud properties at different latitudes, as well as their temporal distributions are presented in this study. An
