Abstract
In this paper, we present examples of aerosol and Cirrus cloud altitude profiles over Hanoi, Vietnam, measured with the ground LIDAR setup of the Institute of Physics. Comparisons are made to LIDAR data collected by the Calipso satellite of the NASA A-Train during its orbits over the Hanoi area. The height distributions for both surface aerosols and Cirrus clouds derived from ground and satellite observations are generally consistent, with distributions between 2km-3km, and 8km-15km respectively for aerosols and Cirrus clouds. Cirrus cloud locations inferred from an analysis of limb spectral radiances obtained by the SCIAMACHY satellite are also consistent with the LIDAR data.
