Abstract
The Raman lidar has been developed and installed in the Beijing from November to December in 2014 for the observation of the spatial and vertical characteristics of aerosol and water vapor in the planetary boundary layer. During the experiments, the Raman lidar operates in the automatic and continuous mode with the spatial resolution of 7.5 m and the temporal resolution of 15 min. The observation results show that the aerosol extinction always increases along with the greater content of water vapor and the lower height of planetary boundary layer. It implies that the decrease of air quality in Beijing is associated with the water vapor in the air and the height of planetary boundary layer beside the enrichment of local and transported aerosols.
