The ecological situation and atmospheric pollution become more sensitive in contemporary conditions. Hence the opportune elucidation of danger tendencies of pollution processes and identification of natural, technogenic and biogenic pollutants together with early prevention of ecological danger for environment and population in real time is an important problem of the atmosphere monitoring. Solving pointed problems in regional scale supposes creating a network of ecological safety stations. Local ecological safety observatories are the base for the network. The first observatory is open in St. Petersburg state university, the faculty of geography and geoecology in ranges of the resource center. The ground monitoring atmospheric pollution is accomplished with using lidar multiwave sounding of the atmosphere. Laser complexes are intended to use for mutual validation with laser on the board of the satellite Calipso in ranges of activity EARLINET.
Keywords: экологическая безопасность, экологический мониторинг атмосферы, лидарное зондирование, лазерный комплекс, ecological safety, ecological monitoring of the atmosphere, lidar sounding, laser complex
