Abstract:

The long-term goal is to develop a rugged, active optical instrument lidar that can be used from shore sites, airborne, and ship platforms to characterize the 3-D dynamics of the clear-air boundary layer. Measurements should include not only profiles of temperature, water vapor, the wind vector, and turbulence, but also a 4-D multi-parameter image of the boundary layer.
