Paper Abstract

The results of comprehensive field experiment are presented. The objective of the experiment is lidar technique development for control of pollutant dispersion from pulse source. Experiment was carried out in steppe region, underlying surface was covered with sparse vegetation. Charge exploded at the altitude of 10 m stand for source of pollutant. Lidar was used to trace the cloud of explosion products. The ratio of backscatter signal from the cloud to aerosol background signal was recorded along with the time and coordinates of sounded points. Ultrasonic meteorological station and sodar 25 - 30 meters distant from explosion location were used to measure air temperature, vertical and horizontal components of wind velocity and its direction, total energy of turbulent motions, tangential turbulent friction stress and vertical turbulent heat flow. Experimental data were compared with the results of numerical modeling of pollutant spatial distribution performed on the basis of Gaussian statistical model. Numerical results were primarily in satisfactory agreement with experimental data.
