Abstract

The results of investigation of the lower-stratospheric aerosol microstructure by the inverse-problem method based on double-wave lidar sounding data at λ = 0.53 and 0.694 μm are discussed. Assuming the aerosol refractive index in the lower stratosphere to be close to the model values m = 1.43 and κ = 0, the altitude profiles of aerosol microstructure parameters at 14–25-km altitude were determined. An analysis of accuracy characteristics of aerosol microstructure laser sounding of the lower stratosphere is presented.
