Abstract:

Correlation between the vertical distribution of tropospheric aerosol and the direction of air mass transfer at different heights is studied on the basis of regular lidar observations in Tomsk (56°N, 85°E). Joint interpretation of the data of 110 sessions of lidar measurements and simulation of 10-day back trajectories of air mass (AM) movement has shown that in 72% of observation the advection direction changes in height no more than once, and it occurs at the boundary of the main scattering layers – the boundary layer and the free troposphere. The direction changes more than once at movement of AM into the free troposphere in spring and summer (11% of observations). It seems impossible to determine the prevalent direction of transfer in the remaining 17% of observations. The change of all lidar characteristics when passing from one layer to another is observed in practically all nighttime sessions of measurements.

Keywords:
