Laser equipment and methodology have been developed to monitor the power of dust sources ejecting aerosol pollution to atmosphere, and the distribution of aerosol mass concentration at regions of large factories. This work is directed to describe lidar technique of atmospheric aerosol monitoring. Technical parameters of lidar stations and results of experimental investigation are presented. The measurements were implemented by the multiwavelength lidar 'Glory-M', which has 7 working wavelengths within the range 0.38-1.0 micrometers , and mobile lidars station (MLS). The lidar design provides measuring the intensity and the depolarization of backscatter signals. Two problems have been considered. The first one is ivnestigating aerosol optical parameter spectra over the boundary atmoshperic layer both at background and industrial regions. The extinction spectra for industrial regions are different from low power, as for background ones. The obtained data will enable one to correct the atmosphere spectra deformation in observing different regions of the Earth from satellites and aircraft. The second problem is invesitigating spatial distribution of dust over regions of industrial centers. The dust flows and power of outbursts have been estimated. The maps of dust mass concentration at the regions of the large factories have been constructed.
