Abstract

A Lidar investigation of dense atmospheric formations such as clouds and fogs is conducted in the region of the Sofia city in summer. The presence of fog usually leads to a delay of the mixing layer formation after the sunrise. A comparison of this result with a theoretical model dealing with sunny day is made. The influence of the underlying surface on the optical characteristics and on the rate of the fog rarefying is determined from the lidar data as well.
