Abstract


There are represented the preliminary results of the radar analysis and ground-based monitoring of dust formation in the atmosphere above the territory of eastern Georgia on the 27th of July, 2018.  Distance monitoring was accomplished with the aid of the meteorological radar «METEOR  735CDP10».  The dust concentration was hourly measured (PM10 and PM2.5) in surface boundary layer in three points of Tbilisi city.  There are given Radar data about the movement of dust formation in the atmosphere above that investigated territories.  It is shown that in second half of day there was noted the strong growth of PM10 and PM2 on the earth's surface 5. 

 


Keywords
