Various types of lidars have been used in attempts to obtain quantitative information about the nearby atmosphere. This report investigates the use of a handheld visioceilometer lidar to determine the extinction coefficient sigma as a function of range r at a wavelength lambda of 1.06 micron beneath marine stratus clouds. Keywords include Stratus cloud layers, Extinction coefficients, Lidars, and Backscatter coefficient.
