Paper Abstract

Based on the size distribution function and concentrations of aerosol particles which were determined in the coastal zones of the southern Baltic Sea by means of the lidar method the thickness of the mixed atmosphere layer above the sea surface was derived. The thickness was determined taking into consideration such factors as wind direction and velocity and different types of sea bottoms. In the range of wind velocities from u equals 1 m/s to u equals 11 m/s the thickness of the mixed atmosphere layer varied from several meters to 1,000 meters. It was also confirmed that wind direction as well as different sea bottoms influence the thickness of the mixed layer significantly.
