We show here new results of a Raman LIDAR calibration methodology effort putting emphasis in the assessment of the cross-section ratio between water vapor and nitrogen by the use of a calibrated NIST traceable tungsten lamp. Therein we give a step by step procedure of how to employ such equipment by means of a mapping/scanning procedure over the receiving optics of a water vapor Raman LIDAR. This methodology has been independently used at Howard University Raman LIDAR and at IPEN Raman LIDAR what strongly supports its reproducibility and points towards an independently calibration methodology to be carried on within an experiment routine.
