Paper Abstract

The means and techniques of lidar sounding are nowadays widely used to obtain the data on the aerosol pollution of the atmosphere, including the industrial emissions and atmospheric characteristics around highways. To add to that scope, pioneering unconventional lidar sounding of optical and microphysical aerosol characteristics was organized during the recent field programs: CLE (Leningrad, 1984), Soviet-American AUTOEX experiment (Leningrad, 1988), Leningrad experiment (1991). The paper presents lidar data obtained from these programs. The problem of interpreting lidar measurements data is discussed. The relationships between optical and microphysical aerosol characteristics are analysed.
