Paper Abstract

The investigation of the volume and composition of industrial aerosol-gas emission is of interest in two aspects: * the study of regional ecological impacts of imperfection of the present-day industrial technologies because the emissions determine the quality of life of population residing the territory exposed to the emission; * the consideration of global consequences of industrial public activities including a probable change of climate owing to the disturbance of the radiation balance of the system "the underlying surface-the atmosphere". The chemical composition and physical conditions in the aerosol-gas emissions can be unacceptable for reliable operation of contact sensors when instrumental testing. Under these conditions, for the monitoring of the emissions, it is necessary to use the remote sensing elements, in particular, optical ones. The report presents the results of the development of two pilot Raman lidars as the means for remote analysis of the aerosol-gas emissions. The advantages of the Raman lidars are in their possibility to obtain the data on a great quantity of gases using one laser as well as to conduct their metrological attestation as teh meters (that is presently impossible for aerosol lidars).
