Pagination or Media Count:
This report describes a method for determining aerosol distributions in the atmosphere using a technique that obtains extinction coefficient profiles and integrated extinction between two points. To implement this scheme, two lidars are set up at opposite ends of a propagation path and pointed toward each other. Since two equations are available to solve for the two unknowns, no assumptions are required concerning aerosol distributions. Keywords Two lidar method Visioceilometer lidars SR curves Extinction coefficient profiled Backscatter coefficient.
