Paper Abstract

Aerosol particles are important both because they affect atmospheric processes and, after deposition to the sea surface, because they affect processes in sea water. Aerosols have a strong impact on climate both due to scattering and absorption of incoming solar radiation (direct effect) and through their effects on cloud properties and associated cloud albedo (first indirect effect) and precipitation (second indirect effect). A shipborne multiwavelength Mie/Raman/Polarization aerosol lidar developed for marine aerosol is presented. The shipborne aerosol lidar (SAL) is able to measure aerosol backscatter and extinction coefficient as well as depolarization in the altitude range 0 to 20 km. The instrument is installed in a 2 m*2 m*2 m container. Preliminary results of investigation of marine aerosol properties on the basis of multiwavelength lidar onboard the Xiangyanghong Number 8 Research ship on the Yellow Sea and Jiaozhou Bay of China are presented.
