Abstract
Combined spectral topographical surface albedo and atmospheric transmission for a rapidly tuned CO2 airborne lidar are presented for 19 wavelengths, separated by 5 ms. The measurements were gathered over a large topographical area and show high signal-to-noise ratio (greater than 5) with single pulse acquisition for ranges up to 8 km. The temporal cross-correlation for different wavelengths is also presented and shows a relatively high correlation between wavelengths for about 20 - 50 ms. The implication of the measurements to the DIAL method is discussed.
