Abstract
A new general analytical inversion of the lidar equation with multiple scattering is presented. This inversion of the lidar equation includes all known solutions as particular cases. It works under single and multiple scattering, for any geometry, and for any reference point in the retrieval procedure. This inversion serves as a theoretical base for the newly developed techniques to retrieve the TOP profiles from measured lidar waveforms. The iterative procedures as well as software INVERTER to perform the lidar waveforms inversion are outlined. INVERTER also serves as a tool for verification and refinement of various retrieval techniques. Iterative retrieval algorithms for different lidar systems, their stability and sensitivity to the accuracy of a priory information used are discussed. The examples of the performed retrieval simulations show a reasonable coincidence of the retrieved IOP profiles with the sea truth.
