In June 2005 the Centre for Atmospheric Research at Otlica above Ajdovščina opened a lidar observatory, which contains a lidar for detecting aerosols, developed by the Laboratory for Astroparticle Physics. An upgrade of the existing aerosol lidar to the Raman version is planned; this will, in addition to the measurements of aerosols, also enable the assessment of the vertical profiles of water vapour and nitrogen content in the atmosphere. The development of a mobile lidar for detecting aerosols is underway. With the simultaneous use of meteorological models, the mobile lidar will enable the study of the spreading of pollution in the troposphere.
