Abstract: A bistatic lidar system was developed for studying atmospheric aerosols. A description is given of the system, which utilizes an argon-ion laser as the transmitter. Steering the transmitter beam in horizontal and vertical planes is accomplished by a laser beam director. A 25-cm telescope-photomultiplier assembly 80-m away from the transmitter serves as the receiver. Preliminary results relating to height distribution (up to 5. 5 km) of the aerosol number density from the analysis of the observationos carried out over four days in October 1986 between 2000 and 2300 h LT are presented.
