Paper Abstract

The results of atmosphere laser sounding carried out in frame of round the world expedition on the board of sail training ship "Nadezhda" are presented in this work. Nd:YAG laser was operated on wavelength λ=532 nm, energy per Q-switched pulse - 0.18 J, pulse duration - 4 ns. Laser repetition frquency was 10 Hz. Photomultiplies of backscattering signal receiving system operate in photon counting and analogue mode. Spatial resolution in photon counting mode - 240 m, in analogue mode - 6 m. The night dynamics and structure of boundary layers was investigated.
