Paper Abstract

This paper presents the results of lidar investigations of aerosol concentrations over the breaker zones. These investigations have been carried out in the Institute of Oceanology PAS since 1992. The measurements were carried out under various weather conditions during several cruises aboard the y/s Oceania on the Baltic and during shore experiments from the Polish coast towards the Gulf of Gdansk as well as the open Baltic Sea. Simultaneous measurements with a PMS aerosol spectral probe and impactors were carried out during the experiments. The concentrations and size distribution functions of aerosols as well as vertical and horizontal gradients of aerosol concentration, mass fluxes and residence times were determined from backscattered lidar signals at various altitudes.
