25 July 1989 Stratospheric Ozone Measurements Using A Ground-Based, High-Power Lidar
Author Affiliations +
A lidar facility has been established at the JPL - Table Mountain Observatory at an altitude of 2300 m in the San Gabriel Mountains N.E. of Los Angeles. This facility uses the laser remote sensing technique of differential absorption lidar (DIAL) to derive atmospheric ozone concentration profiles. Two separate systems are used to obtain the ozone profile; a Nd:YAG based troposphere system will measure from the ground to 20 km and an excimer based system measures from 15 km to 50 km. The systems are designed to make long-term measurements so that small changes in the ozone abundance can be detected. This paper will describe the stratospheric ozone lidar system and present some of the results which have been obtained since it began routine operation in January 1988.
