1 September 1991 Measuring tropospheric ozone using differential absorption lidar technique
Author Affiliations +
An application of a DIAL technique that accurately resolves the vertical distribution of tropospheric ozone up to at least 12 km altitude in one minute, during either the day or night, is described. The prototype instrument is located in the Colorado mountains and is to serve as the first NOAA ozone lidar within a planned tropospheric monitoring network. A schematic of the tropospheric ozone lidar, and a sequence of ozone profiles with an offset of 10 exp 12 between profiles are shown.
