Abstract
For global measurements of the wind field in the troposphere and lower stratosphere satellite-borne Doppler lidar sensors have been proposed (ALAI)IN: Atmospheric LAser Doppler INstrument, LAWS: Laser Atmospheric Wind Sounder). The design of the system components requires information about the coherent backscatter values at the wavelength of CO2 lasers. Experimental results of coherent backscatter measured by existing ground-based and airborne Doppler lidars are collected in the Backscatter Experiment (GLOBE). It is desirable to cover large altitude ranges in different geographical regions and during different meteorological conditions. For contribution to GLOBE, aerosol backscatter profiles have been measured From a mountain position using the CO, Laser Doppler Anemometer and the Nd:YAG Microlidar.
