The carried out experimental measurements of structures of speed and the directions of a wind with the help created meteorological lidar MEL-01 have confirmed perspective of its use for sounding of bottom troposphere. The results of numerical modeling of sounding of the atmospheric temperature and humidity profiles by differential absorption method in the near IR spectral range by means of the MEL-01 meteorological lidar show that the three-frequency method using the absorption lines from the band 0.72 in tropics and mid-latitude summer can compete with the two-frequency method of separate sounding of temperature and humidity. Only the two-frequency method is practical in the Arctic winter conditions. The absorption band of 0.94 is only weakly suitable for sounding in the atmospheric boundary layer.
