This study documents a case of convective cloud system detected over Măgurele site, using lidar and ceilometer instruments. Cloud microphysical properties were examined by using the profiles of lidar ice to liquid water ratio derived from the RALI lidar together with the profiles of the temperature and the specific cloud ice and liquid water content derived from the ECMWF ERA Interim reanalysis. The obtained results emphasize the ability of polarization lidar to capture both micro-physical properties and macro-physical features of a convective cloud in its mature stage..
