Paper Abstract

As shown earlier by direct measurements, the spectrum of aerosol particles in the surface atmospheric layer is sharply changed before an earthquake. A lidar operating at two or three frequencies is capable to detect regions with anomalous aerosol composition with the help of a simple data processing algorithm. Such a lidar can be used as part of a global network on earthquake warning.
