Airborne lidar sensing of the aerosol pollution over the Integrated Pulp-and-Paper Mill (IPPM) located in the hollow of Lake Baykal has been carried out. Horizontal and vertical views of the extinction coefficients of radiation with a wavelength of 532 nm have been mapped. In the region of Integrated Pulp-and-Paper Mill the atmospheric column 1.5 km high with an area of 1 m2 has been found to contain 60–100 mg of dust. Above the water the total content of pollutants has been found to decrease by an order of magnitude for IPPM from the windward side.
