Abstract

b Lidar and direct study of the atmosphere in the coastal zone I. Kolev,* O. Parvanov,* B. Kaprielov,* E. Donev,^ D. lanov^ "Institute of Electronics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, 72 Trakia Boulevard, Sofia 1784, Bulgaria 'Department of Meteorology and Geophysics, Faculty of Physics, "St. Kilment Okhridski" University of Sofia, Sofia, Bulgaria Abstract Results of more systematic investigarion of the aerosol structure of marine planetary boundary layer over a part of Black Sea coastal zone are presented. Lidar data are compared with atmospheric thermodynamic parameters, soil temperature and humidity, solar radiation and balance in air determined by conventional means. The lidar data are presented as two-dimensional images of the variation of the back-scattered laser signals. 1 Introduction The object of the present work is the mesoscale phenomenon of sea breeze circulation. The specific aim of this study is to assess the lidar equipment capabilities in monitoring the formation o
