During LACE 98, the multiwavelength lidar of the Institute for Tropospheric Research was used to measure particle backscatter coefficient. On 9 and 10 August 1998, an unusual aerosol layer in the free troposphere could be observed over Germany. Backtrajectory analysis showed that forest fires in Western Canada were responsible for the aerosol that travelled from the Frazer Plateau via Northern Canada and Greenland to Europe. Measurement of a polluted boundary layer was also taken on 11 August, 2115-2145 UTC. Backtrajectories show the advection of polluted air from industrial regions in Eastern Europe.
