A relatively simple eye-safe compact solid-state lidar for measuring the aerosol backscatter coefficient and cloud height has been developed and tested. The performance of the laser radar based on the semiconductor laser and Single Photon Avalanche Diode as a receiver are discussed. The lidar produces detailed the backscatter coefficient profiles within a hundred meters in daytime with a signal-to-noise ratio of 1:20. By using the direct relationship between backscattering, extinction, and liquid water content these measurements can be converted to the meteovisibility and aerosol mass loading in fog and clouds. Indoor and outdoor data are presented.
