Paper Abstract

In many cases, aerosol may be regarded as a passive tracer which is fully captured by horizontal and vertical air flows. Therefore, the structure of the aerosol field observed with lidar, allows to visualize the stratification of the atmosphere and various atmospheric motion. However, during vertical movements changes of the relative humidity occur, which leads to the related changes in the scattering properties of the aerosol. The report describes a possible mechanism for the appearance of vertical structures ("walls") in the aerosol field during passage of internal gravity waves.
