Summary

We describe the ozone lidar operated at the Department of Physics of the University of L'Aquila. Preliminary ozone profiles obtained with the DIAL (differential absorption lidar) technique are also reported and a comparison is made with ECC (electro chemical cell) sonde data obtained at the FISBAT, CNR in Bologna. Although this comparison is of limited value the two sets of data show a good agreement. The influence of the recent detected volcanic aerosols from the eruption of Pinatubo on these measurements is also discussed.
