Abstract
The Global Backscatter Experiment (GLOBE) objectives require intensive study of the global climatology of atmospheric aerosol backscatter at infrared wavelengths. The data obtained from GLOBE are of great importance for analysis of the global winds measurement application of coherent Doppler lidar. Ground-based and airborne backscatter lidars have been developed to measure atmospheric backscatter profiles at CO2 laser wavelengths. Descriptions of the calibration methodologies and selected measurement results are presented.
