Paper Abstract

Characteristic diurnal variations of CO concentration obtained with high-altitude TDL- sounding in the boundary layer of urban atmosphere are discussed with respect to atmospheric conditions and variations of traffic intensity. Standard deviation of the measured concentrations appeared to be highly correlated with the concentration value. The regional background of atmospheric CO outside Moscow was estimated using this correlation as 200 ppbv. Simultaneous operation of two TDL-analyzers showed the coincidence of the concentrations within 10 - 12%.
