Abstract
Four campaigns of investigation of the atmosphere over the urban area of the Sofia city were carried out. An EARLINET scanning aerosol lidar, a spectrometer and a ground meteorological station were used during the observations. Multiple aerosol layers of variable thickness (200 600 m) were systematically observed in the planetary boundary layer over the area. A study of various optical characteristics of the atmospheric aerosol such as extinction coefficient, aerosol optical depth, Angstrom parameters (&agr; and &bgr;), etc. is performed and their variations are followed during the convective boundary layer formation.
