Abstract:

We wish to develop the theoretical and computational groundwork for a new and innovative program for the remote detection and characterization of both organic and inorganic aerosols using both active LIDAR and passive techniques. This aerosol study should be very beneficial to the Navy in the areas of communications, high power laser transmission, air-sea interactions, and standoff biological detection methods. We also want to continue our collaborative program in polarimetry with the group in Minsk headed by Dr. Eleonora Zege.
