Using $\sim$1m resolution airborne data from research flights we divide stratocumulus top region into sublayers and characterize properties of turbulence in each sublayer. Results indicate, that there are no clear differences of turbulence properties between thermodynamically different "calassical" and "non-classical" stratocumulus regimes, but there are clear signs of turbulence ainsotropy in stably stratified sublayers in the cloud top region.
