A lidar complex designed at V.E. Zuev Institute of Atmospheric Optics, Siberian Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences (Tomsk) and used at the Siberian Lidar Station (56.5° N, 85.0° W) for the study of ozone dynamics near tropopause and for tracking global ozonosphere changes is presented. It allows measurements of ozone vertical distribution in the upper troposphere–stratosphere when sounding using the differential absorption technique at the wavelength pairs 299/341 and 308/353 nm. The lidar complex covers altitudes from ∼5 to ∼45 km.
