An airborne 2-micron double-pulsed Integrated Path Differential Absorption (IPDA) lidar has been developed for atmospheric CO2 measurements. This instrument has been flown in spring of 2014 for a total of ten flights with 27 flight hours. The results of these test flights clearly show the capability of the lidar instrument to measure the total column amount of atmospheric CO2 from aircraft to the ground or cloud top.
