Abstract
We report on the atmospheric pressure measurements using a fiber-based laser system using the oxygen A-band at 765 nm. Remote measurements of atmospheric temperature and pressure are required for a number of scientific applications including greenhouse gas monitoring, weather prediction, and climate modeling.
