Paper Abstract

The greatest difficulties at the determination of optical characteristics occur at the remote sensing of complex scattering media under conditions of absence of a prior information about medium under investigation. Such media correspond to the atmosphere of large industrial towns. Known one-frequency methods of interpretation of lidar measurements results have low accuracy of the determination of optical characteristics profiles and, the more so, as microphysical characteristics profiles because of considerable discrepancy between the real media and their model representations, for which the processing algorithms have been obtained. Moreover, the additional independent measurement are required in order to determine base values or attenuation coefficients in the certain points on the sensing route, or the transparency of the route interval. This requirement significantly reduce the operational advantages of the remote lidar method. The mentioned flaws are remedied in the proposed here processing technique of the lidar measurements data.
