The results of lidar atmospheric observations during the Sichuan (China) earthquake of 2008 are presented. It is shown that the parameters of the atmosphere substantially transformed during and after the earthquake. The profile of scattering characteristics formed in the lower troposphere differs from the original one, which can serve as one of predictors of the phenomenon.
