Laser beams can be used to probe the chemical composition and physical state of the stratosphere. These techniques appear as well adapted for a long-term monitoring. Measurement requirements and analyses usually applied have been reported. Three lidar techniques have been briefly described with a particular emphasis on bias and limitations. First observations of collocated temperature, ozone and wind profiles obtained at the Observatoire de Haute-Provence (France) have been presented.
