Paper Abstract

Various mesoscale meteorological phenomena often determine the transportation, changes and spreading of the atmospheric pollutant over urban and rural areas with a developed industry. The corresponding investigations can be performed by combined use of remote (lidar) and conventional means. The present investigation aims at applying the accumulated experience for a determination of the air quality over large area (400 sq km) including residential districts of settlement in a vicinity of oil-refinery and for a determination of the mesoscale phenomena influence on the air quality of the resort in the coastal zone. We used a mobile aerosol lidar, a tethered balloon, pilot balloon measurements and point chemical analyses for the purposes of the mentioned investigation. The measurements were carried out from 14 April to 9 May 1992 in the Bourgas region.
