We study the scattering ratio profiles obtained at the lidar station of Institute of Cosmophysical Research and Radio Wave Propagation (ICRR), Far Eastern Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences (Kamchatka) from 2007 to 2011, during the cold period of October-March. The statistically average profiles obtained in the mesosphere have well-defined maxima at altitudes of 65, 69, and 75 km. Negative correlations are found between the average scattering ratio and the temperature in the mesosphere during stratospheric warmings, and in the stratosphere during calm days.
