abstract

A Mie lidar was used to make observation of Asian dust over Hefei (31.90° N, 117.16° E) in the every spring from 1998 through 2004. This paper presents main features of vertical distribution and temporal variation of Asian dust extinction coefficient at 532 nm wavelength during the seven years. There were two kinds of vertical distributions of Asian dust extinction coefficients. One indicated that the Asian dust particles intruded into the local boundary layer, causing the very thick dust layer with depth of about 3-4 km. The other showed that the Asian dust passed over Hefei area just above the boundary layer. The aerosol extinction coefficients in the elevated dust layer within the middle troposphere from 3 to 6 km were unusual large. Seasonal average aerosol extinction coefficient profiles showed that larger aerosol extinction coefficients from 1 km to 10 km altitude range were observed in the springtime rather than in any other season.
