22 October 1999 Measurements of tropospheric ozone with a compact UV DIAL system
Author Affiliations +
Current results from laboratory testing of an eye-safe, ground-based ozone lidar instrument specialized for ozone differential absorption lidar measurements in the troposphere are presented. This compact prototype instrument is intended to be a prototype for operation at remote field sites and to serve as the basic unit for future monitoring projects requiring multi-instrument networks. In order for the lidar to be widely deployed, it must be fairly easy to use and maintain as well as being cost-competitive with a ground station launching ozone sondes several times a week. To achieve these goals, the system incorporates (1) an all- solid state compact OPO transmitter, (2) a highly efficient, narrow bandpass grating-based receiver, (3) dual analog and photon-counting detector channels, and (4) a PC-based data acquisition system.
