Paper Abstract

According to the results of lidar observations in 2014, new experimental data are presented. They confirm the possibility of correlation of lidar signals backscattering at the wavelength of 532 nm with the parameters determining plasma content in the nighttime ionospheric F2 layer. The possibility of application of the lidar method in ionosphere investigations is discussed. The physical basis of this method may be the resonance scattering on the exited atoms and ions of the upper atmosphere.
