One of the important applications of lidar techniques is the study of aerosol content and thermal regime of the stratosphere. Such investigations in monitoring mode were initiated at the Institute of Atmospheric Optics since 1986 (for aerosol) and 1994 (for temperature), and are continued to the present. The main attention is paid to studying the annual variations in aerosol content in the stratosphere and sudden disturbances caused by winter stratospheric warming. In this paper we present the results of studying the aerosol content and its vertical stratification and vertical distribution of temperature in the stratosphere over Tomsk for the last three years.
