Paper Abstract

Marine aerosol was studied with the excimer-dye laser multifrequency lidar of Institute of Oceanology in several sites on the Southern Baltic Polish coast. The aerosol was sounded from lidar located in a van a few hundred feet from the shore in different meteorological conditions. The soundings were performed at several angles to the horizon, starting from horizontal optical path. The backscattered signal collected at 2 - 4 wavelengths allowed for calculation of total aerosol concentration and estimation of its size-distribution every 20 feet of the optical paths at several heights over the sea surface. This allowed for 2D mapping of aerosol concentration over the wave-breaking zone and the shore. The 2D aerosol concentration maps obtained in the research will be useful for verification of models of mass and energy fluxes in the wave-breaking zone of coastal sea basins.
