In the paper we discuss the results of the study of the spatiotemporal aerosol optical depth (AOD) variations, performed in spring 2009 for the littoral region in Primorsky Krai and the Sea of Japan on the basis of satellite data and data of the photometric measurements. Also the results of a joint analysis of the data of lidar atmospheric sensing, back trajectory analysis of the motion of air masses, and satellite monitoring of the state of the atmosphere of the studied region are given.
