Lidar network CIS-LiNet has been established by lidar teams from Belarus, Russia and Kyrgyz Republic. Its objective
is carrying out lidar observation coordinated at the territory from Minsk to Vladivostok in cooperation with EARLINET
and AD-Net. During network developing lidar stations will be provided with sun radiometers and will be included in the
global radiometric network AERONET.
The following stations constitute CIS-LiNetL at the first stage of the network formation:
- Stationary lidar stations in Minsk, Moscow, Surgut, Tomsk, Vladivostok,
- Alpine stationary lidar station in Teplokiuchenka in Central Asia, Kyrgyz Republic
- Seasonal lidar station on the base of a mobile lidar at the Lake Baikal
- Shipboard lidar in Vladivostok
All stations will carry out aerosol observations in the troposphere and stratosphere. Two stations in Minsk and Tomsk
will implement ozone sounding in the stratosphere layer.
Discrepancies of the lidar equipment, methods of data processing and software, methodology of implementation of
scientific tasks are presented.
