8 December 1999 Daytime Raman lidar for vertical profiling of water vapor and ozone

We report on water vapor and Ozone measurements made by a Raman LIDAR system recently built up in Lecce, Italy (40 degrees 20'6' N, 18 degrees 6'41' E). The system uses an excimer laser at 248 nm and detects the Raman backscattered radiation from O2, N2 and H2O and can operate in daytime. Atmospheric transmission function, which is mainly due to Ozone absorption, is found not to vary significantly at the operative LIDAR range (200 - 1000 m). We report two cases of daily evolution of water vapor.
