Paper Abstract

A lidar system able to measure simultaneously different atmospheric parameters in the lower troposphere have been developed and used to monitor the air quality of an industrial area of Southern Italy. The system is based on a Nd:YAG laser pumping two dye lasers, and on two Newtonian telescopes, equipped with periscopes for 3D mapping. One telescope is devoted to DIAL and the other to the N2 and H2O Raman channels, and to the elastic channels at 1064 nm, 532 nm and 355 nm. Aerosol backscattering coefficients measurements have evidenced the presence of an aerosol layer. The laser has been characterized by measuring its temporal evolution and by correlating it with atmospheric transmissivity profiles measured at different zenithal angles. Preliminary results of atmospheric pollutants concentration measurements by UV DIAL technique are also reported.
