Abstract
We present the general calibration function for temperature retrievals in the cloud-free troposphere using pure rotational Raman (PRR) lidars under the condition of the laser-beam receiver-field-of-view complete overlap. The function is derived within the framework of the semiclassical theory and takes account of the broadened by collision effects elastic backscattered signal leakage into the nearest (to the laser line) lidar PRR channel. The two simplest nonlinear special cases of the general calibration function are considered to be applied in the temperature retrieval algorithm. The vertical temperature profiles retrieved from nighttime lidar measurements in Tomsk (56.48°N, 85.05°E), on October 2, 2014, are given as an example. The measurements were performed using a PRR lidar designed in Institute of Monitoring of Climatic and Ecological Systems of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IMCES SB RAS) for lower-atmosphere temperature-profile retrievals.
