Paper Abstract

Spatial distribution of aerosol density in the boundary layer can be measured with a scanning lidar system. These measurements can be used to visualize, through color coded R-H maps, the inversion layer height and the dispersion of aerosols from natural and manmade sources. Lidar inversion height measurements were verified by taking simultaneously temperature profiles measurements with a meteorological balloon. The results obtained were in good agreement, suggesting lidar as a powerful tool to investigate aerosol dispersion in boundary layer.
