Paper Abstract

A XeF (351 nm) Raman lidar has been used to monitor tropospheric aerosols over the Sallentum peninsula of Italy and the vertical profile measurements of the aerosol extinction and backscatter coefficient and of the lidar ratio are presented in the paper. The measurements have been performed on a fixed schedule along one year and reveal that the aerosols are confined to lower altitudes and are characterized by larger lidar ratio values during autumn and winter months.
