Abstract
The application of a charge coupled device (CCD) based detection system to Raman lidar is described, experimental details and initials results are presented for rotational Raman studies of tropospheric temperature. The band envelopes of the Stokes and anti-Stokes rotational lines of N2 and O2 were measured simultaneously at a spectral resolution of 0. 1 8 nm and a Marquardt-Levenberg fitting method used to construct atmospheric temperature profiles from the ground. The system's potential as an altitude resolved atmospheric probe of temperature is discussed.
