Paper Abstract

We present some results of investigation of vertical profiles of the aerosol scattering coefficient based on the statistical analysis of data acquired during the whole day round lidar observations of the atmosphere in a spring- summer season. We have arranged several sub-arrays of the data compiled as referred to different types of air masses, seasons and time of day. From analysis of thus grouped data sub-arrays we have revealed certain distinctions in the behavior of inter-level correlation matrices characteristic of each sub-array while at the same time it was established that eigenvectors of these matrices are statistically stable. Based on the peculiarities in the aerosol scattering coefficient profiles and taking into account their statistical properties we propose a four-level height model of the height distribution of the aerosol scattering coefficient.
