The procedures used in making the lidar measurements of O3 and aerosols are discussed, and selected data samples of O3 and aerosol distributions observed during flights between Stavanger (59 deg N, 3 deg E) and the North Pole between about 40 deg W and 20 deg E meridians are presented. The 'on' and 'off'; laser wavelengths used for the DIAL measurements during the Airborne Arctic Stratospheric Expedition (AASE) were 301.5 and 311 nm, respectively. An intercomparison between airborne DIAL and ozonesonde measurements of O3 in the vicinity of Bear Island is shown. The DIAL profiles were obtained by averaging the lidar returns over a 5-min period and then calculating the DIAL O3 profile. Lidar measurements at 603 and 1064 nm are used to infer physical characteristics of the different types of aerosols observed during the AASE.
