In this study we present some first results on the potential of 15 years of lidar measurements over the lidar station of Thessaloniki to compile a climatology of the aerosol properties for the period 2001-2015. This is examined on a monthly, seasonal and annual basis. Both the profile structure and the columnar properties of the aerosol extinction and backscatter products are examined. The results are compared for consistency against co-located sunphotometer measurements.
