    profilers, an aerosol backscatter lidar, and in-situ aircraft measurements in ad-dition to those from the MTP. Relative to the benchmark radiosonde estimates, radar wind profiler ML height estimates were nearly bias-free. Airborne lidar and profiler estimates generally were in good agreement inland, but spatial gra-dients of ML heights made. The lidar aerosol back- scatter (at /im wavelength) illustrates the enrich- ment of aerosols at the base of the stratosphere caused by the jet stream circulation. This is a powerful repre- sentation of the vertical and latitudinal redistribution of volcanic aerosols from the tropical belt into which the debris were originally injected.

    LiDAR as tool for the determination of aerosol micro-physical properties: in particular its application for the monitoring of both re-suspended and primary volcanic ash. development of new and novel atmospheric measurement technology. Principles of Visible, IR and Microwave Remote Sensing techniques, satellite orbits and their characteristics, Spectral bands used in satellite remote sensing for aerosols, clouds and water vapour, Satellite observation geometries, determination of solar and satellite zenith angles and relative azimuth, Spectral variation of surface reflectance.

    With the launch of the German Aerospace Agency's (DLR) Modular Opto-electronic Scanner (MOS) sensor on board the Indian Remote Sensing satellite (IRS-P3) launched by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) in March , 13 channel multi-spectral data in the range of to nm at high radiometric resolution, precision, and with narrow spectral bands have been available for a variety. The winds were obtained with the VAD (Velocity Azimuth Display) technique, which is explained in most books treating Doppler radar, including Radar Observation of the Atmosphere by L.J. Battan (University of Chicago Press, p). The LIDAR directly measures the radial (along-beam) component of the wind as a function of range.

Get this from a library. Novel Co:MgF₂ lidar for aerosol profiler. [M A Acharekar; Langley Research Center.]. The Calbuco volcano in southern Chile (° S, ° W) underwent three separate eruptions on 22–23 April Following the eruptions, distinct layers of enhanced lidar backscatter at nm were observed in the lower stratosphere above Buckland Park, South Australia (° S, ° E), and Kingston, Tasmania (° S, ° E), during a Novel Co:MgF lidar for aerosol profiler book set of observations in April&ndash Author: Andrew R.

Klekociuk, David J. Ottaway, Andrew D. MacKinnon, Iain M. Reid, Liam V. Twigger, Simon P. A novel strategy is proposed to retrieve aerosol layer height for single- or multi-layered aerosol scenarios in wide-swath passive sensor images, aided by profiles of CALIOP. Aerosol layer height is retrieved during 4 spring dust storm events; the average is km in the taklimakan region and km in the gobi : Sijie Chen, Bowen Tong, Changzhe Dong, Fu Wang, Binglong Chen, Chonghui Cheng, Xingying Zhang, Dong.

(a) Raman‐lidar‐derived aerosol particle backscatter coefficient for three laser wavelengths, (b) aerosol particle extinction coefficient for two wavelengths, and (c) aerosol particle number concentration (N acc, particles with radius >50 nm) and aerosol particle effective radius (r eff) obtained by means of a lidar inversion scheme applied Cited by:   Other instruments on board the R/V Brown during TexAQS that provide data usable to estimate MH include balloon radiosondes, a MHz radar profiler, a flux-tower package, and an aerosol and ozone profiling lidar; however, the Doppler lidar was the only instrument to provide continuous profiles of lower-tropospheric dynamics throughout the Cited by:   The lidar scanner took up to 5 s to move to a new position, whereas the profiler beam steering took about 1 s.

Lidar data were collected with 1-s resolution and were later averaged to match the s profiler resolution. This average included only those times when the lidar beam was within 1° of the profiler pointing direction. The temporal variation of the ozone and aerosol enhancement agrees well with the wind profiler measurement in Fig.

2, which clearly shows the pollutants were carried by the southerly LLJ. Fig. 5 shows the h NOAA’s HYSPLIT-model backward trajectories (Draxler and Rolph, ) in Huntsville ending at LT 5 October for three. Lidar has been used for tracking the evolution of PBLH by using aerosol backscatter as a tracer, assuming aerosol is generally well-mixed in the PBL; however, the validity of this assumption.

The Free-Falling Optical Profiler, or Profiler II, measures the color of the ocean and how it varies spectrally throughout the euphotic zone.

The Profiler II is used by the US, Canada, UK, France, Italy, Australia, Brazil, China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, India, Germany and Israel to provide calibration and validation data for ocean color satellites.

We report on the retrieval of stratospheric aerosol particle size and extinction coefficient profiles from multi-color backscatter measurements with the Rayleigh–Mie–Raman lidar operated at the Arctic Lidar Observatory for Middle Atmosphere Research (ALOMAR) in northern Norway.

The retrievals are based on a two-step approach. In a first step, the median radius of an assumed monomodal log. Abstract. A new method for the retrieval of ice crystal number concentration (ICNC) from combined active remote-sensing measurements of Raman lidar, cloud radar and radar wind profiler is presented.

We exploit – for the first time – measurements of terminal fall velocity together with the radar reflectivity factor and/or the lidar-derived particle extinction coefficient in clouds for. WINDCUBE - S/S/S - 3D Wind Doppler LiDAR by Leosphere - a Vaisala company.

The WINDCUBE 3D LIDAR product range is a versatile instrument that can address various needs in the Wind Power, climate research, severe weather and meteorology. With. Atmospheric lidar techniques for the measurement of wind [1][2][3][4][5] [6], temperature [7,8], and aerosols [9][10][11][12] rely on the exact knowledge of the spectral line shape of light.

Lidar (/ ˈ l aɪ d ɑːr /, also LIDAR, LiDAR, and LADAR) is a method for measuring distances by illuminating the target with laser light and measuring the reflection with a sensor.

Differences in laser return times and wavelengths can then be used to make digital 3-D representations of the target. It has terrestrial, airborne, and mobile applications. (c, d) The profile of aerosol backscattering coefficient at nm (black line) retrieved from lidar observations in the time period – UT on 10 May and the corresponding profile of the linear depolarization ratio (LDR) obtained from the radar (red line) are also compared with the profiles of temperature and relative humidity.

The book is divided into two sections. The first section presents characterization of atmospheric aerosols and their impact on regional climate from East Asia to the Pacific.

Ground-based, air-born, and satellite data were collected and analyzed. Detailed information about measurement techniques and atmospheric conditions were provided as well. In the second section, authors provide. A paper describes the Microwave Temperature Profiler (MTP) for making measurements of the planetary boundary layer thermal structure — data necessary for air quality forecasting as the Mixing Layer (ML) height determines the volume in which daytime pollution is primarily concentrated.

This is the first time that an airborne temperature profiler has been used to measure the mixing layer height. An elastic backscatter LiDAR exhibits high spatial and temporal resolution and is widely used in research of atmospheric aerosol, air pollutant, atmospheric composition, and cloud [17,18,19,20].
