Paper Abstract

In the paper some results of polarization investigations of various objects and phenomena in the atmospheric planetary boundary layer performed by a ground-based lidar are presented. An attempt is made the frontal zone passing to be followed in more detail. The dynamics of the cloud system formation is observed. Differences between the optical properties of the aerosol near the clouds base and top are established; through the depolarization coefficient changes within the clouds the phase composition of the latter is determined.
