Abstract : Topics covered include: the worldwide measurements of aerosols produced from the June 1991 eruption of the Pinatubo volcano; the role of lidars in global change research, including long-term stratospheric ozone measurements and the Network for the Detection of Stratospheric Change (NDSC); measurements from space by the Laser Atmospheric Winds Sensor (LAWS) and the Lidar in-space Technology Experiment (LITE); stratospheric and mesopheric temperature and wind measurements; mesopheric sodium and ion measurements; cloud measurements, including the Experimental Cloud Lidar Pilot Study (ECLIPS); laser imaging and ranging; tropospheric water vapor and aerosol measurements; and, the description of new systems and facilities. Although no abstracts are included herein, a NASA-sponsored special session on 2 micrometer solid state doppler lidar technology for remote sensing of winds took place also.
