Arecently proposed methodology to obtain the macro-physical (top/base heights with respective temperatures and
thickness) and optical properties (Lidar Ratio (LR) and optical depth (τcir)) of cirrus cloud have been tested from the
lidar data measured at S?o Paulo city, Brazil (23o 33? S, 46o 44? W) during the winter period of 2007. At the same time was
investigated a generating mechanisms responsible for cirrus cloud formation in the region of this study. Synoptic cirrus such
as those formed in connection with jet streams, and frontal and low-pressure systems, were a common feature of our clouds.
The retrieved lidar data show optical depth and lidar ratio ranging respectively from τcir = 0.08?0.02 to τcir = 0.56?0.01 and
LR = 19 to LR = 74.
