The use of a LIDAR to monitor the air pollution makes it possible to control large city areas and detect the spatiotemporal location of Particulate Matter (PM) emissions sources. LIDAR monitoring is a fast method for estimating the pollution, respectively the mass concentration of PM in the atmospheric ground bioaerosol. The careful study of air pollution becomes especially relevant as the PM are potential carriers of solid-state particles dangerous to health and biologically active components. The present report summarizes our experience [1-3] on how the intricate complex of particles with different content and size found in the aerosol might affect the LIDAR monitoring results on the long distance. LIDAR subject of this study is capable of scanning and mapping the horizontal and vertical aerosol distributions and the transport of air masses with a range resolution along the Line of Sight (LOS) of 30m and a beam divergence of ~1 mrad at operational distances of about 25km [3].
