19 August 1998 Airborne differential absorption lidar and its evolution to space
Author Affiliations +
Airborne laser systems have been used for making remote measurements of ozone, water vapor, and aerosols in studies of many important atmospheric processes. Recent ozone and aerosol investigations have been conducted in the troposphere over western Pacific and in the stratosphere in the tropics and Arctic, and water vapor, aerosols, and cloud investigations have been conducted over land and water during daytime and nighttime conditions. Studies are also being conducted of future spaceborne laser systems for global investigations of ozone, water vapor, aerosols, and clouds.
