Abstract
Two years evolution of the stratospheric aerosol loading are presented; this study started after the eruption of the volcano El Chichon. Measurements were carried out in Florence, Italy, from the end of April 1982 to today. The increase of stratospheric aerosols at our latitude up to December 1982-January 1983 and the following decay has been monitored. Scattering Ratio and Integrated Backscattering, from the tropopause to 28 Km height has been corn puted. Due to the characteristics of the IROE Lidar system short time fluctuations in the lidar signatures could be observed, obtaining information on stratospheric inhomogeneities and structures.
