Paper Abstract

The paper analyzes the results of nighttime lidar measurements of vertical distribution of aerosol and ozone at altitudes ranging from 10 to 35 km obtained from 1986 (aerosol) and 1988 (ozone) until the present time above Tomsk, Western Siberia. For investigations the lidar was used with a transmitter at (lambda) equals 308, 353, and 532 nm and a receiver with a 1 m diameter mirror operating in the photon counting mode. Space and time resolutions of aerosol and ozone were 375 meters and 15 - 20 minutes as well as 500 meters and 20 - 30 minutes, respectively. The basic parameters employed for the analysis of the aerosol and ozone stratification were the scattering ratio R(H) and ozone concentration n(H).
