Paper Abstract

The lidar complex used combined optical sensing method for the lower and middle atmosphere. The method is based on the reception signal Rayleigh (elastic molecular scattering of light at a wavelength of 532 nm) and Raman (radiation first vibrational-rotational transition of molecules of nitrogen cents a wavelength of 607nm when excited by laser radiation in the latter wavelength of 532nm) light scattering. Using Raman channel possible to eliminate the distorting effect of the aerosol on the heights of its location (up to 25km) for the temperature measurement accuracy. With the simultaneous measurement of signals in the two receiving channels received extended temperature profiles in heights from 7 to 60 km, covering the upper troposphere and middle atmosphere. A good agreement with satellite data and upper-air measurements, as well as model representations.
