Abstract:

Initial work under this grant concentrated on construction of the Volume Imaging Lidar VIL. While the major mechanical structures were completed on the previous contract most of the system integration and testing remained when this grant began. The result of this work is an instrument with unmatched capabilities no existing lidar system approaches its ability to map the three-dimensional structure of the atmosphere. A brief description of the VIL is supplied as appendix A.
