The results of two-frequency lidar investigation at wavelengths of 561 and 532 nm of the atmosphere scattering are presented. The laser radiation band covers two emission lines of atomic oxygen and three emission lines of atomic nitrogen. The lines correspond to the transitions between the exited states of ions of atomic oxygen or nitrogen. The possibility of application of the lidar method for ionosphere investigations is discussed. The physical basis of this method may be the resonance scattering on upper atmosphere ions.
