Paper Abstract

Remote-sensing technique (aerosol LIDAR), that provides a opportunity to investigate atmospheric boundary layer structure and determine the height of the mixing layer, was used. Simultaneous observations of the convective boundary layer development and surface ozone concentration dynamics between early morning and afternoon are presented. Contribution of the two processes (photochemical ozone formation and vertical advection) driven by increasing solar radiation to ozone content is analysed on the base of experimental data received during summer campaign of 2005 in Sofia, Bulgaria. Also, simultaneous diurnal surface ozone and meteorological parameters (temperature, solar radiation, wind speed and direction, relative humidity) measurements carried out during summer - spring time of 2006 are presented. An examination of the relationships between ozone and meteorological factors provided evidence for the processes defining observed ozone pollution.
