Results of integrated experiment on determination of optical and meteorological parameters of lower atmospheric layers, performed prior, during, and after eruptions of Fuego de Colima and Popocatepetl volcanoes in dry season of 1994-1995 are presented. We measured atmospheric aerosol optical depths, atmospheric transmittances, diurnal variations of ozone concentration and concentration of aerosol particles in size range from 0.4 to over 10 mm. The multielement composition of aerosol and its change with time are determined for different observation sites, and the results are analyzed with regard for existing meteorological conditions.
