Block diagram and basic specifications of a measurement channel of a multichannel lidar complex with the primary mirror of a receiving telescope 2.2 m in diameter are described. The temperature and aerosol measurements harness pure rotational Raman scattering by atmospheric gases and elastic scattering on the atmospheric aerosols and molecules. A technique for extracting the information about the profiles of temperature and aerosol—to—molecular scattering ratio is described.
