Paper Abstract

A number of night-time lidar soundings of the atmosphere were conducted in the period of 16-19 of March. The lidar had been modernized. Nowadays there is an opportunity to use four telescopes at the same time as well as to carry out measurements which are absolutely simultaneous within two altitude ranges which are from 0 to 30 km ( with the use of Raman scattering) and from 30-90 (with the use of Rayleigh scattering). The data help to define temperature profile up to 96 km as well as to obtain a continuous range of temperature profiles up to the altitude of 65-70 km with the time resolution at about one minute.
