Elastic backscattering LIDAR represents one of the most promising tools for attaining remotely information about the distribution of aerosols and particulates in the atmosphere, which could lead to a better understanding of climate processes. In this paper we shall examine the uncertainties associated with such measurements and try to determine which of the LIDAR parameters need to be optimized in order to minimize the measurement errors. An optimization method of the operative characteristic associated with the LIDAR signal validation is also proposed.
